The E34 is unquestionably one of BMW's handsomest designs, and it has aged remarkably well. This 1995 540i features the 4.0L V8 engine mated to a manual gearbox. Matt Farah just can't stop talking about how much he likes the UUC flywheel and clutch in this 540i.

"Immediately, the clutch is extraordinarily light, like I can't believe how light the clutch is, yet it feels grabby."

"I can't recall a clutch that is so light and so effective as well."

"Wow, does it have a lightweight flywheel? ... when you blip it to downshift, it shifts nice and quick."

"I'm obsesseed with how quickly it revs, that lightweight flywheel is awesome!"

A lightweight flywheel and clutch is the biggest secret in BMW performance, known as the "poor man's supercharger" because of the increase in acceleration. UUCs lightweight flywheel also makes rev-matching easier and our performance clutches hold up to those other power enhancements you have installed.
