hinheken is an unknown quantity at this point
Okay I bought my car 3 weeks ago at when it had 10 miles on the odometer. It reads 1200 now. It is my first manual ever and I've never driven a manual before that so you can guess that there's a bit of harsh, abusive driving.

Anyway.. the thing I feared most is realized... my clutch might be in for some replacement or repair........

The thing is.. I know for sure BMW won't cover it in their warranty (someone please tell me I'm wrong!) considering clutches last much much longer than 1200 miles.

So... if it were to be an out of pocket kinda thing... how much should I expect to pay for a brand new clutch ... and labor?

No offence intended, but if you go through a clutch in 1200 miles then either go and get some lessons or go back to an auto.

Personally i think there is something wrong with your car and you should take it back to BMW, complain there is a fault with the gear selection and dont mention anything about the clutch!!!

More chance of getting the problem resolved.

After 1200 miles BMW should bend over backwards to help.....
