I don't really want to burn out the clutch so am thinking after reading the first reply that by taking out the cdv that could cause some expensive problems. I will get the car looked at soon and get the oil changed as suggested and see if that helps. Just hope ther is not a more serious problem lerking.
Thank you again for your assistance being a girlie find it quite confusing sometimes. I didn't realise just how much different a BMW engine is compared to other cars but I do love him.
It's a tossup.. what kind of a driver are you? The CDV delete is great for the driving enthusiasts, but I just feel that the daily driver isn't going to feel much of a difference.. I did mine recently but I did it while installing a new clutch and flywheel, which is another story I still need to post about here sometime.

PM me if you end up doing a clutch replacement..

Thanks to all e46fanatics and other BMW forum users, without the community, our wallets would be more empty than they already are.
