Uh.. I was going to get a light weight flywheel that would work with a m3 clutch. But my clutch died sooner than I hoped and I only had money for a stock clutch.. pooooooooooooooooooooop. ghead If I didnt get a new clutch Id be carless for month plus... and I got no way to get to work, so that was preaty much my only option. However, I still want a light weight flywheel. I called up bavarian autosports and they said their flywheel weights 15 pounds less than stock and can be used with my stock 325is clutch. But Im concerned with the flywheel being a single mass and it would work unlike a bmw should with a 325 clutch. Too much vibration. Does anyone know anything about the bav. auto flywheel or anyone else that makes a flywheel that would work with my stock 325 clutch. Thanks
True.. 325is clutch does suck... even when new, I have had it slip a lot after few launches. Thanks for the advice Kevin. I was lookin at those stage 2 kits from uuc for a while, and I hear good things. I may as well start saving up... Cost is huge, but sounds too cool to pass up.
I've tried to remove the tranny in my garage. It's pretty much impossible without a hoist. There isn't enough room under the car to drop the tranny. Once you somehow manage to drop the tranny, just remember you have to get it back up there and bolt it on! That's the hard part.
Anyways, I have an M3 flywheel/pressure plate for sale which is used. All you need is the clutch disc.
BTW all stock BMW clutch discs suck. They were made for people who granny shift like 40-50 year old men who can't drive. The M3 clutch disc is the more acceptable one. It actually bites with minimal slippage. It still slips more than I'd like, and I have a 318. The clutch is supposed to take 450hp? Anyways, if you like cruising around more than you like performance driving, stick to the stock clutches, an M3 clutch would be useless to you. A performance clutch can be quite brutal. If you start to fall asleep and your shifting gets a bit lazy and sloppy, you're going to feel some hard jerks. Stock clutches are best for traffic jammers and I suspect it's the reason why BMW clutches are so soft. They are easier to live with.
