ok so for diff fluid use Redline 75w90 and for tranny fluid use Redline MT90 you can find these on the internet for the clutch go with a OEM M3 clutch kit it will be smooth and never slip under abuse also while you are in there either get your stock flywheel resurfaced or a lightweight aftermarket flywheel, places to get these goodies

i went to order the clutch kit today at my local Bmw dealer. I told them i had a 95 325i and wanted to put in a 95 M3 clutch kit instead. So she check on the computer it had different part # then a 325i. Then she asked the Technian he also said it will not work Now my question is does it have to be another year M3 or is the staff not know what they are talking about. And do i need a M3 flywheel also or would a 325i flywheel work. I am ready to do the clutch i need help asap.
Thanks to all in advance.

I know an M3 clutch fits fine, and I assume a '95 M3 would be the right one, most BMW dealers don't want to do this stuff, find a good BMW shop. BMW Club Canada should have links to good mechanics.

I believe if you want an M3 clutch, you need all M3 parts, which I assume includes the flywheel.

Are you interested in an LSD? It costs around $1500 to put one in your 325i, including labor.

this is not really the best site for E36 stuff, try bimmer.org.
