Sorry if this is a dumb question, but does having a clutch stop have any wear on the clutch itself? Since it's slightly reducing the clutch travel, does the clutch fully disengage still? Assuming it does, and stock just has extra play? Thanks!

It feels to me like the clutch still fully disengages, there's just a ton of excess travel with the stock stop. If you're worried about it, though, you could always just remove one of the shims - they come with 3 installed.

I know some people have said they can't tell a difference, but I definitely can. Now the throw feels right, whereas stock it just felt long.

Thanks! I'm sure it makes a difference in a positive way looks like a cool mod, just wondered if it was fully disengaging...

Once the revs drop, it's safe to assume that's where the clutch disengages right? Unless there is another mechanical component that requires the pedal to be pressed to the ground haha

I'd think the only other thing to consider would be if the car will actually start, since you have to depress the clutch to do so. That hasn't been an issue at all though, so I'd imagine the car considers the clutch to be fully disengaged. I don't see a downside.

Not a dumb question at all. The clutch fully disengages about 3 inches above the pedal hitting the floor, maybe a tad more.

I do want to comment on the whole "no stall in 1st gear" feature.

I never had a car that had something like this, and I think it's really cool. The clutch stop helps with faster shifting, but it would also help with not staling if said feature was unavailable. The automatic rev-matching feature is pretty cool too. I think I might actually let my wife, who hasn't driven a manual transmission car in 10 years, take a shot at driving the ///M2

So does the clutch pedal doesn't come up off the floor as high OR you don't have to push in the clutch as far?

It's larger than the OEM clutch stop so shortens the travel of the clutch pedal. You don't have to push as far.

I made my own for less than $2 using A xmas tree panel clip, washers and rubber stick on pad.

Reduces travel at the end. So you can't push as far.

Pulling out the stock clutch stop was quite easy. The little rubbery white piece. However I'm having trouble pushing in the BMS clutch stop all the way in with my hands. Do you guys use any tools? Perhaps I just press on the clutch pedal very hard to press it in?

How do you like this D CHOI? You were a week 7 too, so you're prob still getting used to the clutch as well. I just bought one to install as well, bc coming from my E90 the travel is throwing me off and my shifting is jerky. Hopefully this helps!

I had the same issue, when pushing the BMS into the hole, it would bend do to the pressure. I ended up laying on the footwell, got a better angle at it and wiggled it in. It took a few tries but finally worked. Good luck!

Yea I finally got it in. I made sure I had a good view while laying down with a flash light. Now I was able to move my seat back one click and it feels better. Engagement now is a lil earlier and the stop feels solid when pushed down.

I used all 3. My understanding is if the clutch is not fully disengaged the car won't start. When I get time I'm going to investigate taking some travel out of the top end as well. Testing max. elimination of travel at the top end you drive and turn the cruise control on and if it does you're OK. CC won't come on if the clutch isn't fully engaged.
