Adam, congrats on the install... The gear whine from the Vortech always sounds intimidating.

One thing, I couldn't help but notice in the videos that you seem to press the clutch-in after an acceration run, then coast to a slower speed... then re-engage it. Not a good thing to do. Very bad habit (a know a few friends that do that). Am I wrong?
Yeah, I still do that
I'm trying to break from the habit, but every so often I still find myself doing it. I'm hoping the BMW driving school this september will help me learn proper driving technique.

Furious: I dont think so, but maybe I killed a bird last week by accident, so who knows.

About the clutch slippage...I have determined that it IS slipping a little, but most of the slippage is because of my bad shifting. Some slippage is because it just can't handle being pushed that much, but for all I know, the clutch I'm using is still the original one from purchase, so it probably needs changing anyway.
The car definately now needs a beefier clutch in though.
Time for my E34M5 clutch kit soon
