Hey Folks,

My clutch is slipping and I want to know what replacement parts I should get the car is a 1997 e36 m3. I'm looking to do an upgrade. Here is the issue I want to get the car fixed next week. So i need the parts for monday. Is this wishful thinking.

So what parts should i get for the upgrade.

Thanks!

Depends on how you drive, if you just like to cruise, get another stock clutch, there is nothing wrong with them. If you track the car, get a Sachs Sport clutch, or anything uprated, if you want to make the engine more responsive, get a lightened flywheel, or a UUC flywheel with an M5 clutch.

When is your clutch slipping? Is it just between hard shifts? Or is it all the time?

Try this: put it in first, get rolling gently up to about 2500rpm, then hammer it. Is it slipping? If yes, then it's your clutch. If no, then lookup "CDV Delete". The Clutch Delay Valve can cause slipping under hard shifts. The '97 M3 does have a CDV (I know because I have the same car) and removing it is the best mod dollar-for-dollar (free!).

Just say NO!

If I'm not mistaken (and I probably am), 96+ M3 and 328 models come with the CDV -- I've personally removed a couple from both models. It takes about 20 minutes and you'll wonder why you didn't do it sooner. CDV Delete = *th-up*

not all of them had it... my z3 with the 2.8 didn't have it...

e46 m3s have it and its a popular mod too to remove it.

Hey guys thanks for the responses. It is definitely not the cdv - if i jump on the gas the tach flies up but the wheels don't respond accordlying (a la burnout). Most of my driving is just in and around town. it is not a track car so probably stock is the way to go.

Thanks for the help.
