When the car came to a stop I could smell the clutch burning but after about a min or so the smell was gone. I'm pretty sure the engine shutoff when I started going backwards, or at least I hope so. I know that the automatic BMW trannys do shut the engine off to protect it but I'm not so sure about the manual trannys.
As for the driveline, I don't feel anything different, except that the alignment is slightly off but probably cause the idiot that I am allowed the tow truck driver to pull the car out by pulling on the control arm!

Wow, you definitely spent some time running backwards. Is the driveline behaving okay?
