hey everybody!! Clutch Question??

What are the 1st symptons of a worn out clutch. Off the line my e34 seems to be real lazy till i hit about 3000rpm then it pulls hard.

Thats not a clutch issue, thats just the powerband on your engine...

Go on the highway, cruize in 3rd arround 4000RPM, then gun it, if the engine revs, then the clutch is slipping, but if you accelerate, your all gravy...

Thats one way, I am 100% sure there are better ways...
