Id like to have my car up on the lift... I would be all about installing springs and shocks, but I think I will leave that for when I have more money to spend ont he car, and the time to let a professional do it...

Also, Shim, is there kit for the clutch stop!? or just play around with clutch engagement!?
You can buy one, which is adjustable for like $30. Or you can make the same thing for less than 5. I'm not sure where the engagement point is for the 335is, if you bring an elevator bolt to my place, I can make it for you.

Heavier? I heard that the E90 clutch gets heavier over time, I don't think it's because of the CDV delete.

The clutch stop is a complement mod. The CDV thing is easy.

I'd be interested in removing the CDV. Never got around to doing it to the X5, might as well take care of it in the 330.
