You know, you make a great point! [emoji106]

It takes the “large feel” (weight) of the X out of the clutch engagement from a dead stop. And it does really help on inclines, even when not towing.

I can grab the clutch at 1000 rpm’s easily, and get’er to 4 grand quick! Not bad for a vehicle that weighs over 2 ton. I’ve always felt, that the manual E53’s are geared perfectly.
