I finally put a "fullsized" spare on my wife's 2011 E90 328i M-Sport. I thought you may be interested. I had to...

Wrong, the aluminum under tray's primary purpose is a chassis stiffener. It is considered an essential item.

Did the clutch chatter from day one, or did it gradually get worse? If it got gradually worse I think you have a rear main seal leak. They should fix at their expense. Problem is, the clutch disk is...
