Thumbs up I just got a 8.5lbs UUC Flywheel!

Well, the UPS guy made yet another delivery today. In the box I found a 8.5lbs UUC LTW Flywheel that I bought from UPMotorsports on a groupbuy.

The flywheel looks to be of pretty good quality, no burrs on the aluminum, no cheap fasteners (8.8 grade for the pressure plate and 10.9 for the crank fasteners), and even loctite is included.

All I gotta do it get an e34 3.6L M5 clutch kit (pressure plate, throwout bearing, clutch plate) and wait for my current clutch to wear out spontainiously.

Appearently this flywheel is supposed to be chatter free, but we'll see once I install it....

....I just don't know how soon I'll be installing it.

Drive everyday doing drag launches from stop signs to red lights

Or do a lousy launch where you end up burning you clutch hehe j/k.

I can't wait to see the flywheel + clutch combo on your car. i want to see how it feels on your car

Appearently the M5 clutch will actually lighten the pedal feel, which is something I'm looking very forward too (aside from the quicker revs and such).

Yeah heel toe should be super easy.
My A4 friend did the clutch + flywheel upgrade on his white a4 and it revs so much quicker than his silver a4 w/stock flywheel. Same with when he does heel toe downshifts, it's easier to rev match.

Nice! I have the same one myself, but no need to install it yet. I'm also waiting for my current clutch to wear out beforehand.
I got the e34m5 parts from bimmerparts.com if you're interested.

According to their website, they have some in stock, so I would say yes. Give them a call to be sure though.

yeah it's all new parts, and the clutch I bought was made by Sachs as well (so it's not some crappy brand either).

Thinair, $640?!? Tell me that included installation right? Make sure you ask about a clutch kit for an E34 m5, and not the E39 m5.

You mean by lightening the pedal feel is like those pedal feel in e46 where there's no clutch resistance at all? heheh i was surprise when i tried the 330 clutch pedal it's so light and fluppy

PS: I will do the flywheel e35M5 clutch kit too when my clutch dies which I think around 30/40,000km more

I was quoted over $646 at the dealer for a 3.6L e34 M5 clutch kit (pressure plate, throwout bearing and clutch disc), no installation (I'm doing it myself anyway)

oh shit so wait it lightens the feel of which pedal?? i like the heavy feel of my pedals and everything right now...i actually hate the new e46 feel....it feels like a civic or some shit....too too light....
what are the benefits of the e34 M5 clutch kit? i want to see if it is worth giving up the pedal feel for performance....
Thanks!
