    Leg Distance to Clutch + Gas/Brake

    Is it just me or do I feel like the clutch is a lot farther away than the gas and brakes, meaning I feel like in my seat position the brakes and the gas are kind of close to me but the clutch is really far away so I have to sacrifice one or the other for my comfort, and some people say you don't have to depress the clutch all the way down to shift and I understand that, but that's still not a good feeling and I'd rather have my left foot reach down to the end without having to reach and straighten it out totally, do you guys know what I mean or is my body weird?

    Having my right leg bent much more and not able to relax while I am stretched out on my left, there has to be something I am missing here?

    For a cheap fix you could try a clutch stop, that helped me a lot. You can get one for example from bimmerworld. You just screw it in to a little hole behind the clutch, it acts as a stopper to shorten the travel.

    The other option is the mason engineering pedal. I bought one but haven’t tried it yet. I know ZHPizza tried it out. He said it brings the clutch closer in line to the brake pedal, I believe he has pictures in his red car project thread.

    It's not you. It's the seating position. The driving position isn't ideal in E46's because it's off center and actually angled away (off-axis) from the center to the left:

    It bothered me a lot when I got into an E46, but I've gotten used to it.

    I'm using an elevator bolt (thanks @ZHPizza) with E36 rubber cover. Works well, is adjustable and cheaper than buying one from Bimmerworld.
