I get 30% discount in parts from a BMW dealer here in atlanta and still my bill just for parts is $804.00 and that includes:
1. Clutch Kit $138 aprox.
2. Flywheel $560 aprox.
3. 8 bolts $1.25 each
4. Rear main Seal $30 aprox
5. Pilot bearing $14
6. clutch plastic pin $2
and i dont know how much i'm gonna get charged in labor.
Does anybody know some where to get cheaper parts same or better quality?
Is it recomended to replace the flywheel or can i just get it rebuilt?
How much do you guys think it is for labor?
sorry my car is a 92 325i

You don't have to replace the flywheel everytime you do the clutch. You could just get it machined. That would be like $40. Plus, if you want to replace it, you could probably get a light one for cheaper than that.

my car has 99,950 miles on it and i think the flywheel or the cluth has never been replaced on it.
I'm just scared that if i dont replace the flywheel i'm gonna get some feed back from the cluth later on!!

not neccesarily.. The flywheel shouldn't need replacing at 99,000 miles in most cases.. And if you consider a lightend flywheel be carefull as the weight of the flywheel is what keeps the car at idle.... i.e. getting too light of a flywheel causes the car not idle as well or if at all, where you have to end up adjusting the idler screw so the car idles at a higher RPM...

i just had my original clutch replaced last year at around 230,000 kilometers (much more than 99kmiles), and i didnt have to replace the flywheel just got it machined a bit. i bought a kit which is cheaper than all the parts separate.
