That sound about right for a 328.

Thats a pretty good price.... a clutch kit will cost you around 3-400 from the dealer so 200 for an install is pretty good

Dealer = good prices on a lot of normal wear items for parts/labour, including brake packages.

It depends on how you drive. Some people think they baby the clutch by not dropping it or shifting hard, but they end up "dragging" the shifts so you hear the RPM's go up and then drop as the clutch is disengaged. Sort of a UHHHuuhhh. That's the worst possible shit for a clutch, especially in high gears. It all depends, no one can say for sure, but about 200 - 300k is a good number for an automotive clutch. That's generally when they need replacing.

I never understood that, it's not like the labour is any different at all between the 328 or an M3. Although the M3 clutch kit is a little more expensive.

My M20 clutch lasted 240k with my dad, he's really light on it. I don't see them lasting much longer than that, save for guys running stupid highway hauls all the time (no shifting).

607$ for the parts and Labour....


At the beginning of this summer I wanted my brakes done and it was around the $700 mark for parts and labour, 4 sets of pads, 4 new rotors, and sensors....

I think it's close to $700 for my clutch as well...

Not bad prices....

package price meaning that the parts and the labour are combined and offered at a lower price. So if you bought the parts at Autohaus and got them installed at Open Road you would pay more because you bought the parts seperate.

I remember doing the brakes on the E46 last year, buying the parts alone costed more than the package. I was going to do it myself, but that idea was thrown out quickly.
