6 to one, half a dozen to another. You either get caught with the red head, or you try to find a blonde that looks like your wife. Either way, its gonna be better than before.

If you are going to remove the CDV, I would just get the gutted one from ZR. It only costs around $30, and it looks like the factory part from the outside, which is always a good thing for possible warranty issues. With that said, if you ever fry your clutch I would doubt that they would replace it either way. Unless you beat the piss out of your car I wouldn't sweat over the rest of the drivetrain.

most bmw techs could give a rats ass if it there or not..most dont even know what it is. and unless they are looking for a problem related to the clutch no one is even going to look. save your money and just take it out.

Surprisingly enough, 1 clutch replacement is accepted during the full-service warranty

That's good to know.

The guy who did my delivery only said oil changes, and brakes.
