Mine's getting worse again and warranty is coming up for renewal soon, I wouldnt otherwise bother renewing and looking at the exclusions on the extended warranty, clutch facings are on that list so I could see them rejecting the claim using that clause, but given its a widely known fault and mine has already been in a couple of times to attempt a fix (new clutch a couple of years ago which temporarily fixed it, then firmware update last year) Im not sure they would / could get out of it that easily.
I extended my Approved Used Car Warranty just to cover this event and I was told that, if they found a 'manufacturing fault', replacement of the clutch/flywheel would be covered by the warranty. Of course no fault was found and I only recovered the cost of replacement through the good nature of my local service manager and (I think) a stinking letter to the MD of BMW UK and the Chairman of BMW GmbH (see my previous posts). I won't be renewing my warranty next time!
