Welcome, looks like Cartbon black?
Just as hard to maintain that paint as jet black.
If you have any questions feel free to post them here, there are a couple of us M5 owners that can try answer some but M5board is definitely the place to be.
Be careful, Im 26, I've had m5's since your age and it is easy to get into a sticky situationw ith these very powerful and big cars. Take your time to learn how the car performs before pushing the DSC button.
To answer your question, I had the clutch done on my jet black M5 and I did a flywheel resurface, new clutch kit with all of the little bearrings etc that come in the kit and rear main seal. While everything else was out, I decided to throw in an e60 545i SSK, night and day difference. Both of my M5's have the SSK and it is perfect compromise of great feel and easy driving.
Hope that helps
