sometimes when i take off, it feels like the clutch is riding or something, although it is fully out. although i have the accelerator fully down in first, it feels like im in 2nd or even 3rd. sometimes this 'lag' comes into play just before i let the clutch out, so i almost stall. what is the problem and how can i fix it?

If the clutch is slipping the engine will rev without the car pulling away as fast as it should and you'll need a new clutch. If the engine is dying as you try to pull away then you have a flat-spot and need to get the fault memories check (ask for the printouts)

definitly the clutch slipping man, that sucks, i'm in the process of buying a new clutch as well, except i'm doing a conversion to an m3 clutch in my 325. That ought to stop the slip-age, lol. Good luck.
