s50 yes, they are both getrag trannys, if its a bit pricey than dont bother, but if your getting it for a steal than go for it... ill have to look into the flywheels though, i thought they were relitively the same thing

reason i say is because there really isnt that much of a significant difference. if you want, save up and buy a LTW flywheel and clutch assembly, yes its more money, but you will actually have some form of performance gain.

I dont have enough for a LTW unfortunatly, the reason im switching to M3 is because its only about 50 bucks more, and is a significantly bigger clutch..

Also, i need a new flywheel as mine has 142k on it, and the only used ones (with reasonably mileage) i can find are M3 because so many people upgrade to LTW flywheels.

thanks for the input
