I am in the market for a clutch and lightweight flywheel and have been doing a lot of research on "bang for the buck." I just emailed Zionsville Autosport because i saw they had a very price efficient setup. In my message to them I asked if their lightweight setup included an m3 clutch. They said it came with the standard clutch and a 14lb flywheel. He said that I have a Getrag transmission and that the bell housing would be too small to run a M3 clutch setup. This sounds like BS to me. So I was just wondering if anyone out there knows that they have the same transmission as me and are running the M3 setup and your comments on it?

It should work. I have a 318 with a Getrag tranny and it works perfectly. I just had to repalce teh slave cyl, pilot bearing, release bearing, pressure plate, flywheel and clutch disc with M3 parts.

People very commonly swap M3 clutch kits into other model BMW's.

Bumping back to the front...... It is time to order my clutch and flywheel parts but I have one more question that my dad brought to my attention. The M3 clutch and flywheel are larger in diameter correct? If this is true then how is the starter going to link up with the flywheel (there would not be any room? I have not checked out the starter on an e36 but usually they come in perpendicular to the flywheel and have to meet up perfect in order to engage correctly. If you have a bigger flywheel then it does not seem like the starter would fit. Again I have no idea how the starter looks or where it goes on an e36. Help is appreciated. Got to order my parts within the next week and I can not take up the lift for more than a weekend.
