Help me troubleshoot this transmission/clutch issue....

Hi Guys -

So, I know I need a new clutch and flywheel because I'm getting some slipping. I had posted another thread about my clutch issues here: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...836&highlight=

So, here are some new observations that I'm hoping the wiser folks here can use to help me pinpoint this issue. I haven't been driving it at all until I can work on it, but then yesterday my wife's jeep's radiator cranked in half, so I had to go rescue her. Anyway... here's what I noticed:

1. It's still very difficult to get in and out of gear when I depress the clutch. However... I seem to be able to clutchless shift just fine (i.e. rev-matching). Timing my shifts just right, and I can drive no problem.

2. When using the clutch pedal and it doesn't want to not come out of gear, I can give it a bit of a rev and it'll come out fine.

3. There seems to be some inconsistency in the pedal feel. It's subtle, but it's there. In fact there were moments where I had released the clutch all the way and I had my foot just barely touching the pedal (no pressure) and then later I felt the pedal come towards my foot just slightly... first time I thought it was my imagination, but after a few other times, I realized it was definitely happening in the pedal.

So... what would these additional symptoms point to?
