Question How Much For A Racing Clutch

okay guys, heres the story, obviously i rape the **** out of my stock '92 325i and now the clutch is starting to act up, so today my mom took it to the mechanic and he told her that the clutch is ****ed (or something around there, maybe gears are worn or what not, not an expert at this topic, besides my mom told me this so who knows, shes a blonde so i cant rely on all the info being true, lol) anyway.. he told her that this isnt supposed to happen this quickly unless her son (me) does aggresive driving. Like obviously i do but the clutch hadnt been replaced since it we bought it like 4 years ago, so ****, how much is a racing clutch so i dont have to deal with this bullshit, not like a drop the clutch from 6000 rpm, ive never dropped higher than 3000-4000 and all i do is just shift gears fast and maybe get little squeks off the start. its not like a ****ing do donuts all day long raping it like dado and other dtm members with their m3's and what not, lol.. so i was just wondering was it the age of the clutch that caused something to get ****ed, or was it my aggresive driving, either way i would want to get a racing clutch in the future since it should solve my habits, so could i get an estimate or something.. thanks...but like what the ****, its a bmw, what am i supposed to drive the speed limit and not make it go 0-60 in 7 secs, like come on, i gotta *devil*

I'd go at the most an M3 clutch, unless your car has some significant hp (like 300+), the m3 clutch will hold. Plus racing clutchs are usually hard to modulate (Either on or off).

basically the oem clutches coming with the 325i's like ours arent made to be driven to aggresively, the racing clutch can withstand higher temperatures, doesnt wear down as fast, and is meant for fast shifting, basically a racing version of the normal clutch

I think bimmerparts is located in Pensylvania? it would probably cost the same to ship to Hamilton......better yet, they can declare the value of the clutch as 100 bucks to avoid customs
