Yeah its just about fried. I have been looking around for a new one and have found that bimmerparts.com is the cheapest, so far.

Its a 97.


Anyone know if there are any other cheaper places out there.


Also if anyone has a tech manual would you please scan me off the clutch change procedure, I need the torque specs.


Thanks all!!

damn.. well, I have the manual for the 3series, but it isn't for the M3.... anyway, are you sure you want to go with a stock clutch? are you planning mods down the road? or do you not really want to spend $500 on a clutch right now??

My price on a brand new Sachs clutch kit for a 3.2L M3 is $300 plus shipping

I dunno what I am gonna go with yet. I am really just looking into them and stock seemed the most likely because I dont plan to do any crazy mods.

So does anyone have any experiences with diffrent aftermarket clutches? And what are you opinions on them??

Well in my talon, I started out with the stock clutch that I bought the car with.... well it didn't last through any mods at all.... Moved on to the Centerforce Dual Friction which is available for the M3 also... Awsome grab, feels practically like a stock clutch pedal, not much stiffer.. But on my talon it wore out in a month.. and the last clutch I had was the ACT 2600lbs clutch kit.... Strong as shit, doing awd launches you would spin all 4 and couldn't get that biatch to slip, but it was a stiff-ass pedal....

I would go with the Dual Friction by CF... best buy for your money and you'll pick up a bit of performace from harder grabs when you shift hard... but just my 2 dollars and 21 cents...
