    Is the clutch slipping whilst driving? If not I'd not bother replacing it. E46's do tend to suffer from clutch judder at times, Many remove the CDV (clutch delay valve) which improves clutch feel and can reduce judder.

    When was the clutch slave cylinder last bleed? Just doing that may improve things...

    All 318's judder.

    The cause is because the clutch bell house is to small to dispate the heat

    It gets worse when driving in traffic, hill starts, and ridding the clutch

    If you remove the cdv it helps, but you will get used to driving so it doubt happen

    But a new clutch will not solve your problem it is a known fault

    Mine judders when warm.
    Just the delay valve. No biggy just irritating in traffic.
    Like when I arrived at the Northampton meet... :(
