Also my tech is a personal friend of mine so he wouldn't BS me. As for him being knowledgeable, he's been with BMW for 10yrs and before that Ferrari. He can do an engine swap in a day and tranny swaps in 3 hours (the book calls for 6).

I removed my clutch spring soon after I picked up my car 2 years ago. From what I remembered removing the spring helped the clutch pedal return smoother. After having the CDV removed, the clutch pedal feels very consistent all throughout. The pedal also feels lighter (or it could just be in my head )

Also keep in mind my car is an early model 08 so maybe BMW changed the CDV for later year cars? All I know is my car HAD one.
I think I will have my tech remove the valve (in whatever form it is in) and the spring. I hope that addresses my dissatisfaction with shifting feel.
