In Reply to: Serious Clutch Slippage posted by Bran Kelly on September 12, 2000 at 19:33:53:
With past cars I've owned I knew the clutch was bad when I would experience slippage while in gear going up hill. Don't know if this is the case with an M3.
Has anyone else experienced severe clutch slippage with their M3?
I have been to the dealer and they assure me that this is normal behavior, but many times if I take the engine up to 4-5000rpm and engage the clutch it doesn't fully engage on the engine side - I could be red-lining and going 15mph to begin with until the clutch slowly kicks in and finally matches the speed with the RPM's.
This just feels completely wrong to me - I should be able to spin the tires at will, should I not?
By the way, this is with ASC turned OFF.
