Where to buy a.....(help)

B) Ok so I baught my 93 325 on Sunday and Ive already had to replace the fuel pump... which was actually pretty ez (im used to working on Jap cars) OK so there went 250$ 2 days after buying the car... Im cool... no probz rite.... well driving home from work today launching from a stop my clutch slipped..Well DAMMIT! Im not having good luck so far...my fault tho for buying this buet. off of a 19 y/o kid(spoiled brat). So my question now is where can I buy a decent clutch kit? I don't totally trust the ebay guys and the local auto shops (autozone , kragen , pepboys) all hire a bunch of retards which every one of the clerks asked me if a 325i is a BMW....(dont you wish someone could invent a way to backhand over the phone).. Also is there a way to know if I have the duel flywheel set up with out dropping the trans. That way I only have to do it once when I actually install the thing ?


Thanks

Jake

Ljk619 is an unknown quantity at this point
Yes you do have a Dual-Mass Flywheel. Not quite sure how that'll help you but in whatever way hopefully it does.

As far as clutch kits, if you're an independent worker (working on the car in your backyard) then I'd say dealer. Warranty and all that jazz. If you work for a shop then look up a wholesaler company under the name of SSF, they sell OE stuff cheap, hence wholesale.
