Where to buy a clutch kit?

Ok guys, I want to buy an e34 M5 clutch kit soon, and I was wondering if anyone know of any place (preferably locally) that sells OEM Sachs clutches. The dealer wants like $650 for an M5 clutch kit, so they're not really an option.

BMPD's M5 clutch kits are $120 more then most other US parts places.

Thanks, I guess I'll have to call Ultimate BMW Parts, they don't list the 5 clutch on their site.

Now that I do the math it's actually cheaper to buy it locally at the dealer then buy it from BMPD, and that's not even including customs. But BMPD isn't $120 more, only $90US more, my bad.

$359US is the cheapest so far.

Sorry about that, when i bought my clutch from them it was the cheapest place i could find, 199 US and when it came delivered to my door, it was 380ISH can, something like that!
So overall not too bad!
I thought maybe the M5 kit would be the same!

At the moment technically yes, but I'm swapping out my stock flywheel for a lightened one that only accepts the e34 3.6L M5 clutch kit.

I bought the flywheel on a groupbuy so it wasn't that bad..

This flywheel was designed for my car (or any e36 for that matter). It was just also designed to use the M5 flywheel because it's:

a) OEM, available anytime, anywhere
b) cheaper and about as good if not better then an M3 sport clutch kit
c) reduces or eliminates flywheel chatter because the clutch disc has a sprung hub

It's a very well known product, I think it even one the European Car Mag award or something. I'm not one to usually buy things that aren't proven.
