Did the clutch stop install, and it only took about a couple of minutes. I did take it for a test drive and immediately felt the difference with the reduced clutch throw, resulting in smoother and faster shifts.

I still haven't installed mine. I keep forgetting that I have it.
Honestly, this car is so easy to shift, I really don't see the need.

Try it, it's a huge difference.

Yeah, I'll throw it in there soon.

I guess the general consensus is to run 2 of the 3 spacer washers?

It wasn't life changing but you do notice it a little. I suggest you use all 3. Install is super quick as well.

I used all 3, that's what I'd do. It'd be a minor pain to put 2 in and then have to climb back down there and add another. 3 works really well.

Installed mine today. Really liked the shorter travel distance. Why isn't this the default travel distance setting by BMW?

Installed mine today. Not a huge difference for me to be honest, however I wasn't pushing the clutch till the end. Now I am
Regarding the installation procedure - very easy, no need for a screwdriver etc., just use one hand. Two minutes max.

I've had the clutch stop since a week after taking possession of the car. Makes a decent difference, and eliminates the copious dead zone in clutch travel. Made a much bigger difference in my 135i so many years ago. I consider this an essential mod for these cars.

For the life of me I can't understand why BMW would want so much play in the pedal.

Here's my clutch stop. It's a flat Lego 2x2 brick with 3M tape. If I want it thicker, I simply add more bricks. No squishy feel either. Has held in place for 1.5 years. Free.

I just installed mine this afternoon on my 2017 m240. Installation was a breeze, though a very awkward maneuver to get down beneath the clutch. The feel is noticeable in a very positive way.

Was curious about this after having my car over 2 weeks. Engagement of clutch is just over half way of pressing the peddle. Thanks for the find. Just ordered.

Just installed. Just get a flashlight and reach through the rubber flaps by the clutch pedal. Pull out the old one, insert the new. I used all 3 washers.

Pretty big difference. The dead zone is gone. The clutch is a lot easier to modulate.

Just installed mine yesterday with all 3 shims. One of the best mods. Recommend for all manual owners.

Not realized but I guess I mash the peddle with some decent force. The OEM stop was split and deformed a bit with only 5000 miles. This one looks like it will hold up well.

As a tall person that like to push the clutch all the way in, I feel like this could be the small difference I need to get fully comfortable with my driving position.

Anyone know a source that delivers to EU for reasonable fee?
Reasonable being NOT 50$ for a 10$ small piece of plastic like one of the forum sponsors asked me to pay (after placing an order online which states free shipping...)

It might be easiest to have it shipped to a member in the US, who could then ship it to you. The clutch stop would fit in a regular envelope. Not sure how much that would cost to ship to the EU, but I can't imagine it'd be $50

PM me.
I am not going to use mine, and would be willing to ship it to you, the cheapest way possible.
