Ooooh! Ok, for the whole kit then. Yeah that doesn't sound too outrageous then. I paid $540 for everything in the end. I was just quoting the price of the disc itself before.

Did you get any noise/rattling issues? And did you keep the stock 328 clutch slave cylinder, or swap to an M3 unit? I'm thinking of swapping mine to the M3 because I hear it raise the release point higher, which is great if you have a clutch stop (plus I really dislike clutchs that practically engage on the floor).

I'm doing mine myself in the garage, it seems to be cheaper that way, although I may take my car out of commision for a couple days to a week (depending on how much free time I have). There actually isn't a whole to swapping a clutch, the hardest part is getting all the bolts around the bell housing off, and aligning the tranny input shaft to the clutch spline when reinstalling the tranny. Borrowing/renting a tranny jack helps too, but isn't necessary. Having an extra set of hands comes in very handy though (if those hands are sober, give your helper beer only once the job is done ).

While I have the tranny out I'm also going to change a bunch of random tranny seals, maybe the rear crank seal, and my guibo.

thinair: much respect for doing this mod yourself...i'm gonna take my car to a shop haha

i heard on E46, changing to Redline MT90 transmission fluid will eliminate the chatter. (from Rob@UUC)

others have done it and took out "most" of the chatter

I'd do an engine swap at my place if I had the money to buy an engine right now .

Yes, I have an pneumatic engine hoist bolted to an I-beam in my garage.

I have a M3 clutch if anyone need it. It was on my 328 when I had the AA flywheel. I'll sell it for $250. like new. These clutch is enough for your light flywheel.
