i've got something like 96k on my 94 318ic (i don't have the car here to see actual miles) and the clutch feels like it's slipping. it is the original clutch and i'm glad it made it this far. now that it's time to replace it, i was wondering if anyone has any experience with aftermarket clutches and flywheels. i am probably going to go with an oem setup unless there is a better kit out there that will perform better and last a good amount of miles that you can refer.


thanks in advance.

upgrade the clutch to my knollege the tranny is the same for theE36 318, 325 and M3 but the clutch setup changes for the M3. I have been told but possibly unreliable that you can upgrade to a M3 clutch set up. BTW if your not doing it yourself then hope you got one hell of a deep pocket.

deep pocket or not, i don't intend to spend an arm and a leg on my 318. i have a good mechanic that won't rip me off, so since labor is the same, i want to know what the best parts would be.

318 doesnt output enough power to need a different clutch.


flightweight flywheel would make it feel faster/more rev happy but wouldnt change much more then that.
