new e36 clutch

I have been searching the forum for a while trying to find out what you guys have paid to get you clutch done. What do you think the labor would cost? I know parts will be like $300 and then like $30 to resurface the flywheel. But how much would the labor be? Thanks for the help.

kestrel325is is an unknown quantity at this point
IIRC, the job pays 3-4 hours. So at $65-$70 / hour... so somewhere between $195 and $280 in labor. You could call and get some estimates from shops around yourself.

mechanical skills

I do everything my self with my cars, but i thought that doing a clutch is a really tough job. I dont have a lift or anything, so wouldn't it be a really pain the ass??
thanks for all the advice.
