Help!!! 2001 325Ci clutch problem

Hi, new to forum and website.

I bought my 2001 325Ci last summer and stored it for the winter. I suspected a clutch problem when I bought it, but thought maybe it was just a bmw "feature" not a "flaw" when I would experience a delay after shifting. I also own a 1987 325 and it has done similar things when shifting.

I am considering requesting the dealer to remove the restrictor valve in the clutch line, but cannot remember the name and such. Does anyone know more about this "feature" that is only used by bmw? Has anyone removed the valve and what was the outcome, etc.

Any help would be appreciated, my other half is a "Honda" person
