Something is wrong with my clutch

I live in the city, so there\'s alot of stop and go traffic. My clutch pedal seems to have gotten a little stiffer and harder to depress. I feel vibrations threw the pedal. It sounds like it\'s gonna start to squeak as I release. The car is brand new. What\'s going on?? Help

hmmmm..... my thoughts would be to get it to the dealer and have the service personnel take a look at it (unless you are used to working on these machines). I sound like a noob 'cause I am and my technical knowledge regarding an M3 is not that very much, but I am pretty sure that it being a hydraulic clutch, the hydraulics may need to be looked at (master cylinder, slave cylinder) although am not sure about the exact mechanics of a M3 clutch. Have you noticed any oil leak around this period?? Does the operating temperature have any influence on this?? Best thing, have the service personnel take a look at it....plus its a new car - I would make use of the warranty .....

M3 veterans.... any inputss??

There is only 2500 miles on this M. I did look for leaks, and there wasnt any, but its getting really annoying.. When i first got it 2 months ago, the clutch peddle wentdown so much easier... ahhhh im taking her back tomorrow morning..

she's a beauty. the current M3 is a looker. and yes ,, better take it to the dealer .... plus the good thing is ---- whatever it is, big or small , in all likelihood, its covered under the warranty.......

and yes.... congratss on your car........ it is one of the few automobiles that deserves all the respect it gets, and there are some..... the M3 (in all its iterations) ranks right up there.....

Thank you! Of coarse the second I get to the dealership my clutch felt fine. They said my clutch is perfectly normal. Ahhhhh it's just so annoying. I know something is wrong. I guess I have to wait till it get noticeably worst to bring it back.

hmmm.... does it get worse in stop and go traffic when the engine is hot and the clutch is used repeatedly and then get better after say... hitting the freeway and cooling down for a bit?? also, have you noticed a slippage when the clutch gets worse??
