  14. Newbie Tech question

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I hope this is where you post tech questions also. About how long does the clutch last with 'average' driving on a 2011 1.6 M5? I know it's hard to estimate, but average time, average driving, not a whole lot of 'city' mile? Also, can they be 'adjusted out' like clutches back in the day? Thanks.
