Just wanted everyone to know this, cause it was a huge upgrade to the feel of my E36 M3. I installed a new stock clutch, but with it I put on a lightweight flywheel, courtesy of JB Racing (you can get it through Bavarian Autosport), Some rigid transmission mounts from UUC Motorwerkz, and a Bavarian Autosport short shift kit, all in one shot! It feels like I am driving a new car. I wish now I put a bigger/stronger clutch, but the stock clutch keeps that nice feel when I am not driving the car hard. It was a great addition to make the car put more of its horsepower to the rear wheels because that flywhee makes a huge difference!!! The engine braking is almost gone though now, but I can feel more pull through the whole RPM range, and even off the line. I highly recommend the flywhell upgrade, and the transmission mounts are nice under hard driving. they keep the transmission from trying to twist so you can get the shifting done nice and smooth, never miss that gate! Soon I will be installing the new Corsa RSC 36 exhaust on my car when UUC ship it to me.
Any questions feel free to ask, but its quite and upgrade!

Awesome upgrade! Do you think the upgrade would make a noticeable difference in my petty 325is?

I bet the upgrade would do more for a 325i than an M3. If you put in a new clutch put the short shifter and the flywheel, and the mounts aren't that expensive and you'll have a new feel to your car. Replacing the clutch is a fortune, but if you already have all the parts, might as well go the extra mile and get the upgrade. I can not speak for the power you'd feel in a 325, but I can definately feel the difference!!!

Was it blue?

It was silver, and I believe it was around $350 bucks. It wasn't a bad investment though, glad I went with it!
