Sooo recently my 323is 1999, has been grinding whenever I engage the clutch, I searched some old threads seems like a throw-out bearing issue. So if im gonna replace that I know I should do clutch and fly-wheel. I found a clutch and flywheel kit on this site but im hella iffy on it because it cost 307.00 im cool with that but I know this is suppose to be a very expensive situation. Do you guys know anything about Sachs clutches. Im new to the euro world, but apparently they use these clutches at alot of Euro factories? Any Advice on this would be greatly appreciated guys, thanks....

I'm pretty sure Sachs is the OEM for BMW so that would be a safe bet. There are a lot of options out there you may want to consider to change performance.....- a lightweight flywheel, for example.

Okay, two schools of thought here.

1. Seach for Matt's 'Hellrot turbo build' thread, then search it for 'F1 Stage 2 clutch flywheel'

2. go to http://www.pelicanparts.com and search for their 'clutch super kit' to tell you EVERYTHING you 'should' change while in there. Then sub out the parts you can buy elsewhere of higher quality/better price, and you're golden from there.

Hope this helps,

Ed.

Thanks guys! I looked up that F1 stage2 kit, im thinking thats the best bang for my buck. I researched the crap out of the company and reviews look pretty sound. My only other question is what do you guys think is fair labor wise ?

Hey! I resent that Joe, I give helpful advice!

;)

For labour IIRC it's around 4-6 hours, so for a friend helping price, take that amount of cash, divide by 4 and buy that much beer...
