Haha understandable. Our cars rarely have the research already completed as we have all come to find out. I think I'm sticking with UUC and I will be sure to do a full write up on it. Thanks for getting back to me on this, I would hate to just without even questioning an option, rule it out.

Thanks again Guido for taking the time to write that out. I have been looking at their specs and talking with them. Everything seems to have been done professionally and the shop has agreed that they believe the same. I will keep on the research until the purchase, but this has definitely helped me leaps and bounds.

If what you are saying was true, the TO bearing would be spinning the entire time the car is running and wouldn't last too long.
On older mechanical lever style and cable style systems there are return springs that pull the TO bearing mount back away from the pressure plate. On hydraulic systems the pressure plate pushes the TO bearing back so it only moves as far as it's pushed so incidental contact happens. Here's a photo of an E90 TO bearing installed, but the E85 is the same. As you can see the rod from the slave cylinder can only push on the lever, there's no connection for it to pull it back. Z4 TO bearing lever and bearing assy also shown in photo below for reference.
