The BMW is my 3rd car with a manual. My second car is an RX-7 with a Corvette drivetrain (T56 transmission). I also had an Acura TL.
The BMW has by far the lightest clutch. It is pretty smooth but took a bit to get used to.
IMO the shifter is kind of notchy when compared to the Acura. CDV delete helped to make the shifting smoother but it just feels a bit hesitant in certain gears. Also, the throw is a bit long.
