Need to replace the clutch on my 97m3 with 86000 miles. Ive heard UUC and AA tuning a lot. Which clutch is best for spirited driving?

No so sure about the M5 clutch.. yes.. it works wonders in a car that is putting a lot of HP down.. but he has a 97 M3.. it would take a lot of work to push 500hp... which would be the only way that said clutch would be of good use...

AA Tuning makes great clutches... I would check around though... read some reviews... SACHS makes a good heavy duty clutch kit for our car... www.turnermotorsports.com sells them... good stuff there... they sell a few others... search around.. and call a few of the tuners.. they dont mind pointing you in the right direction...

Good Luck,

Les

Highly recommend the M5 Clutch for Turbo or Supercharged E36's

But if yours isnt id say stick with OEM it is more then enough.
