My Ride: 2003 330ci slammed
330ci not wanting to shift???

I have a Slammed 2003 330ci manual that last week decided it didn't want to shift anymore. I had driven in the morning ING gotten home had lunch and when I went to leave again it didn't want to shift into gear. Clutch feels basically the same as prior to not wanting to shift but it just won't go into gear. I can shift it in gear with the car off but it idols really low and wants to die, then I can't shift out of gear. Not sure what is going on. A buddy said it's probably my slave cylinder. I had a mechanic say to remove the battery for a little while then put it back in, (haven't tried yet due to being out of town). Any other ideas what's going on. I get back in town later today, and need it fixed asap for work. Thanks for any information you got!

Clutch is not disengaging. E46 has self adjusting pressure plate, this means it adjusted too much. You must remove the transmission to see what is wrong.
