I'm really hoping the swap comes through, though. I'll get another pedal and a few more ponies under the hood.

for those who have 3 pedals, do e46 have a "long" clutch? When I drive my friends' hondas/acura, it feels really short and why does it auto rev(like around 250rpm) when you step on the clutch to shift? I think its pretty cool because it helps you rev match but I tend to over-rev because I'm not used to it.

It did for a while, haha.

I would have gone s/c already if I had a manual, but having a step is making me want to do even crazier things.

the reason why my sister bought the BMW in stick was so that my mom couldn't drive it. I'm glad its stick or else I wouldn't have bought the car off from her.

did you do a clutch stop? hmm i never noticed the "auto rev" i don't think it has that man. you probably just have your foot on the gas a little longer than normal or something lol

do you have a clutch stop? an SSK? IMO those 2 things when matched with an M3 steering wheel is the best thing evarrr since sliced bread.
