I searched!! found thinairs experiences but thats a 328!

so is any1 running the uuc light weight ( listed for M3's)in a 318??

what other options are there?
I had read some stuff about putting in a 325 non dual mass into the 318
but that might have been e30 stuff...
tranny was different on the e30's to the e36's, no/yes?/?

I have the Fidanza 11lb flywheel with an M3 clutch and pressure plate. Works like a charm.

Anything smaller than an M3 flywheel would be a step backwards.

I hope you are not getting a stock clutch, A good upgrade is e34 M5 clutch.

The e34 m5 clutch is NOT a replacement for a e36 clutch (32x or M3). It requires a UUC stageII flywheel.

stock clutch will hold anything a m44 or 42 can put out and then some, im puttin a clutch in mine and ive been doin some research and i hear that a 96+ M3 pressure plate and clutch is a good upgrade but ull have to buy a 96+ m3 clutch fork to install them, which is no big deal and u should be good. i guess a m3 valve body is recommend for reduced pedal effort but i like to feel where its grabbin idk about u? hope that helped.

ohh and to answer ur ? You can go with either an lightweight M3 flywheel or an OEM M3 dual mass flywheel. ull be quicker in 1st and 2nd with the aluminum M3 flywheel but you may experience some rattling, in neutral from, the tranny. Any E36 M3 flywheel will bolt right up to any other E36 motor with no problem.

thanks beamerboycsl had come across most of that in my readings

So appearantly the 318 NON AC models have a SINGLE MASS flywheel
that & a beefy clutch would be a good mod out of factory parts *th-up*

does anyone know where I could pick up a light weight flywheel for the 318I?? I dont want to go through the trouble and $$ of getting an M3 clutch kit since I've already upgraded my clutch when I swaped motors...
any ideas....thanks in advance!!!
