Question about clutch stops

hi everyone, i just have a question to everyone. What brand of clutch stops are u guys running? I have been looking through the forums and found ones that are home made clutch stops, and also found ones on ebay, but dont really know if its the best to go with. Mine somehow managed to break off in my car, so time for a new one.
Thank you everyone for the help.

I can give you a home made one for free, if you pay for shipping or if you can meet me.

I have made over 100 home made clutch stops for all my BMWs and my buddies.Made them at work, thought about selling them , then thought its not right to change someone for something that was free, so I started giving them away.

They look like this. I make them in any lengths, been using my "home made" clutch stops for a combined of 60k kms and never had any problems nor did any of my friends.

I recently spent 12$ and bought one to support a member from the states. I personally BARELY notice a difference, but I can tell, when I pay attention, that it is there and helping with how low the pedal goes in.
Unfortunately for me M5's cannot use the really long ones because of the fact that they have a clutch switch which needs to be pressed before the car will start.

^^ No point of a clutchstop unless you put it to be close to the catch-point. There's no way to keep that sensor pressed?

Not just the M5s, every BMW made after 96 has one.

Have on on my 95 E36. I bought it off a member here in the Part sections. I personally could never go back to not having it. Best $12 I spent.

Clutch Stop

It's really easy to assemble one yourself. Search DIY clutch stop on e46fanatics, then get the parts (elevator bolt & rubber pad) at Lowe's.
