I'm looking for the best deal on a clutch kit?

So ... after swapping everything and starting the car seems I have to pull the tranny just one more time ... pressure plate is facked!

Anyone have a kit laying around ... must be brand new (for a 91 325i)! I am not throwing any more used parts on this car; I am losing patience with it as it is. Today was the day the car was suppose to drive out from the shop under it's own power and it's still on the hoist!

I bought my complete clutch kit from Town and Country BMW for $400 tax in + $50 core charge, which of course you get back when you bring the core back. OEM ftmfw! LOL. I have a '91 325i.

The engine is stock and probably will not be going up in power any time soon. Stock should be sufficient for a while.

I'm not sure how Sachs performs for Bimmers, but on a VW Golf I had, I thought I'd save money and buy a Sachs, and it was crap. It lasted 2 years and 75 000 km, then I put an OEM from VW and it went the rest of the life of the car which was another 220 000 km when I sold it and as far as I know the next owner used it until he parted the car out 3 years later!!!! Just my two cents, you might save a little at first but it's going to cost you more in the long run.

Its coming FedEx so expect GST and PST on top of that. Not sure about brokerage.

Rockauto have an arrangement with UPS to prepay duty and brokerage from the site, so you'll know the up front cost.

I managed to score a deal and a half for a complete Sachs kit for $240 after tax.

Many thanks to all that tried to help me out! Your help is much appreciated!
