That is NOT clutchless shifting, you just aren't how the clutch gets actuated.

Default Re: Clutch Free Shifting

it depends on the specific tranny; if you do this to your s420G, or most the modern BMW trannies, you will quickly destroy the synchros IMO. I've shifted old Jeeps, Old pickup truck with a t18 borg (which you more or less can't destroy if you try), but modern trannies have been lightened and re-designed for gas mileage, and engineering, IMO, is much more able to fit a tranny to specific loads with less overdesign.
Remember before you try to learn this on your E46M3 tranny: you can't get parts to fix it; if you round off your synchros, it's new/rebuilt/used swap time.

I've been doing this a lot in the past week or so, my left knee is messed up and it's been killing me everytime I clutch, so what I was doing was starting in second, then clutchless shifting to 3rd and 4th.

I don't like doing it but I kind of had to. Knee is a little better now, been shifting again!
