Clutch Options? 325ci
 
I am sure this has been asked a lot but didn't see it in the search. I also have not been on here for a good 2 years.
But anyways I picked up a cheap 2001 325ci for some tracking this summer and I need to get a clutch. I don't want to break the bank but just a cheap option.

Best I have found so far is a Sachs - Clutch Kit for $320 and then flywheel machine will be around 100.

I new back in the day there was the M5 Clutch and flywheel set up people were doing on the e36's not sure if that applies to the e46 and if it would be cheaper or more?

Thanks

It has a dual mass flywheel, I wouldn't spend the time and money to re and re the tranny and not get rid of the flywheel. I know you wanted to do this on the cheap, but .... it's a considerable amount of work to put a known failure item back in

Its not a big deal got the tranny out in 40min today. I was actually just changing that but checked the clutch and noticed that it was getting close to the end so I am going to replace it before I put the new trans in.
Thanks though.

Ended up just getting the 320 clutch kit and did a light scuff on the flywheel and all is well.
