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.
couldn't have said it better myself. once you get used to the cdv the car is as smooth as u want it to be but the 1-2 shift is a pain in the ass. 3-4 shift on the other hand is orgasmic
