Hey my clutch is doing that ever annoying grinding/squeeling, it is just not appealing

Since i drive a 318, i doubt i need anything aftermarket, but what do you guys think. I am really missing a precise clutch so i want something really precise and strong..

Should i just go with OEM or any suggestions for aftermarket

I'd recommend just another OEM one, but don't buy it from the dealer. PM one of the many sponsors, you'll get a much better deal. Plus they can probably even install it for you too.

Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."

Nannn, get a carbon fiber clutch disc hehehe, that will grab nice and tight.

Just kidding, thinair is right. Change the clutch with OEM and check the transmission for leaks, best time to change the transmission seals and change the transmission fluid with Redline MTL. While you are at it, check the flywheel also.

I am installing my Sachs race clutch, it isn't a bad job.
