like a rubber block, or whatever it is they install to prevent you from pushing the clutch all the way in. the point is to allow u to disengage/engage the gear without going all the way to the bottom. for "performance". i believe that's what it is

yup - most BMW clutch pedals have a lot of extra travel to the pedal- you can reduce that and it improves shift time and feel.

I looked yesterday, and there isn't a plastic pad screwed in like on previous generations, so there's no where for a clutch stop. Plus I've tried not pushing the pedal all the way back when shifting and it grinds a little, so I think BMW has put the least amount of travel in as possible.
