Hello,
I have 04 M3 SMG. Car has been running like a champ and driven lightly with 76K on it. I recently floored it in 1st gear up to red line and let go. After that it started to shudder when taking off in 1st and 2nd gear at low rpms. Shifts perfect though. I haven't been driving it much after maybe, 100 miles. Also when car is in idle make this light crunch, grind noise from what seems to be the transmission off and on and while driving at low speed and while shifting every gear. Almost sounds like a bearing is going out. Or something with the clutch, maybe it needs to be tightened. Not sure what it could be? Any Ideas?
Thanks!

well lightly driven and M3 shouldnt be in the same sentence. thats your main problem. You gotta beat on the s54 every once and awhile for it to run nice lol.

Its an SMG there's no clutch pedal. I red lined it in first gear and let go right away to stop...
