Need help with flywheel choice

I want to install a lightweight flywheel in my 2.8. I only have 9000 miles on the car so I didn't plan on replacing the clutch. I can get just the flywheel from Turner and not replace the clutch or UUC has a flywheel that they recommend using with a clutch kit from a 3.6 liter E34 M5 which has a sprung clutch. This is supposed to reduce or eliminate the noises typically associated with lightweight flyweels, and it's supposed to be able to handle the power better. Is it worth the extra $ for the clutch kit? Thanks

highly recommend the sprung hub disc regardless of which brand flywheel you choose, but I wasn't aware the disc would work with the non-M flywheel/pressure plate, have only seen it advertised for the S52-M's

UUC Motorwerks has the best flywheel prices and weights, supposedly close to releasing matched sprung hub disc kits, you should give them a call:

Cool Clutch Cargo

Use the M clutch and flywheel. It is lighter than stock Z3 and stronger. About the same price, and your car will be drive much smoother.
