clutch stop ??? anyone install one

in your e90/92?

if you dont know what it is it keeps the clutch pedal from going all the way to the floor so you can move the pedal faster. most BMW clutches have too much travel.

I don't know about any clutch stop, but I do know that Bimmer clutches have too much travel.

E90's do not have a clutch stop IIRC. The old ones on E46's were modifications to the ones that already existed.

To my knowledge, it can not be done on E9x's.

In the end couldn't this be harmful to gears/flywheel if you are not fully disengaged? I know there is a lot of travel, but I think you should take into consideration where it grabs.

I believe the consensus was that this non-ebay clutch stop (only 15 bucks!) is legit: http://www.khoalty.com/E9XInterior.html

...and actually, I just received mine in the mail today and am eager to try it out.

Can post results if I get to it sometime soon...maybe this weekend

it's only harmful if with the clutch stop the clutch doesn't completely disengage when pressed. i actually have the ebay clutch stop

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...STRK:MESELX:IT

and it works so perfectly on my car. i love it. the travels is so much shorter and shifting becomes easier. my wife loves the setup too. took me 5 mins to install, very simle

This doesn't interfere with the "clutch pedal down to start the car" safety interlock?

nop, it doesn't affect anything. i still have to pretty the clutch down (until it stops) in order to start the car. otherwise the car won't start.

and fwiw, on my car, the hill stop feature is also not affected as well

Couldn't you just stick a 2x4 under the clutch pedal?

I wonder why they didn't do this from the factory. Hmmm....there must be a reason.

I have one and love it. I bought from a vendor here on the forum but I forget which one. You should be able to find it if you search. You could probably find something at home depot that you could use just as well too.
