Best price on clutch kit?

Hey guys... just bought an '87 325es ($1000 steal!). Had the manual 5spd. go bad in it, the previous owner bought a low mileage replacement but it didn't have the correct tail housing on it for the E30 shift linkage. His mechanic didn't know enough to just swap the tail housings and put it in, so it sat for 2 mo. because he couldn't find the right tranny. (small KY town) Anyhow I bought it and will proceed to swap the tail housings and throw the tranny in, but first I will need a new clutch. Here in lies my delimma! My local auto parts houses want anywhere from $245-$500 for the stinkin thing! I don't have that in the budget and would like to find one a bit cheaper. Anyone have any good experiences or made any recent purchases that might be of assistance? I found a couple SACHS sets on E-Bay for like $160 shipped. Sounds pretty good but no local service if problems arise! You Louisville guys ever do any business with Kentucky Clutch? Heard good things but can't find their number anywhere! Any help would be appreciated!

What do I need to look for to know if I have a dual mass or not. I heard that the '87 models made in late '86 didn't have this. I like Authausaz.com as well, very good Co.!

It goes by your build date. With any luck you can still read your dotted door sticker.
