Sachs clutch ripoff ? ? ?



Just received my new clutch and pressure plate from Rockauto today and to say I am very disappointed, would be an understatement. This is a Sachs kit for a 1999 M3 that I am ( not ) using, on my ZF trans. and M52 swap in my 1984 e30. From what I can determine the friction surface on this plate, should be just under 10 mm new, this disc, new in the box, is 1.6 . WTF? Has anybody else come across this? New clutch is on the left, disc on right has been in the car for 12 years!

To be honest, I think you have two different clutches there--look at the centre piece from the side, they look quite different (the old one has an extra piece around the splines). I'd say one of the two is the incorrect part.

Yes they are different, the one on the right is out of a Getrag 260 that was behind the old 325e m20, the one on the left is the new disc that will be in a ZF box behind my m52 that I am swapping into the e30. The disc on the right is for comparison only.

I see. Have you asked Sachs what the thickness should be? I recall my old E30 clutch being thick too compared to my E39 one.
