Got my car 2 weeks ago. This past weekend I got a Drivetrain Malfunction error, and it went into limp mode. Drove it home, all seemed fine, and let it sit overnight. When I came out the next morning, I could barely get it into gear because the clutch was slipping so badly. SA tells me I need a new clutch (at 600 miles
) because it was defective, and now I have to wait 8-10 days for the clutch to ship from Germany - bummer
Some good news is that apparently it is not counting toward the 1 clutch that is "included"/given with the maintenance warranty based on the mileage, etc (also the right call because I was in no way abusing the car to honor the break-in period).
It's too bad because I am absolutely in love with the car so far - I miss it already. I have a 2011 128i loaner and it doesn't even come close.
Does anyone else out there have a manual and experienced clutch failure?
