My Ride: 323Ci, 325xi
So I just got home from school, 15 degrees here today. Needles to say the car just stalled out right after I started it until I finally started revving it. Drove fine after that except for shutting off on the highway -_-
Luckily for me it was right as I was switching to 5th so I had the clutch pressed in and just started the car again as I was rolling.

On my way back, the car basically refused to move. The clutch caught on fine, but as soon as I started to give it a little bit of gas the RPMs went down and the car stalled out. Therefore, I was had to ride the clutch like no other revving it to about 1500-1800 before I could release the clutch. This was a ton of fun especially as I was stuck in rush hour traffic for about 40 minutes.

Needless to say, seems like my clutch is gonna be next on my to do list.
