Don't know about that clutch, but if you're looking for a better clutch, get an M3 one.

the problem with the m3 clutch is you also need to get the m3 flywheel which costs $$$$$

do you really have to get the m3 flywheel if you get an m3 clutch? I didn't know about that.... and does anyone know if an m3 clutch and flywheel will fit on a 95 318is?

I've heard that the sachs doesn't feel that great. But then again I have never heard of another OEM replacement clutch either... Are the sachs the stock clutch?

Dude,

Stay away from secondary market parts. Go with sachs (oem) on the clutch, pressure plate, and bearings. You can find nice package deals from internet sales places as mentioned above (and can get an additional % off if you ask.) Also, get the flywheel resurfaced. You don't need a new one, but you surely will benifit from your old one's machined surface. (should only cost you about $25 to resurface)

I don't suppose ACT makes clutches for BMW's correct?
