    I just used a regular Sachs OEM spec. I have seen some "uprated" ones on ebay, and i even bought one once, but they sent the wrong one, then just ignored refunds til i got ebay on their ass.
    Their clutches were reconditioned, and rattle canned gloss red.

    I think there is a sachs performance one, but it's about 300 quid or so.

    I'm not sure if it applies to the 325 - but the 323 has just a 228mm clutch.

    Going to a 3.0 M3 or 328's clutch setup (including flywheel) gives you a 240mm clutch.

    The M3 and 328's setup are different, so you'll need the complete clutch kit and flywheel for either model you choose.

    There's not much point in a 'performance' clutch kit. Get you clutch line bled and a stainless hose fitted for better engagement control.

    Thanks mate I decided 2 go for an one from BMW see how that goes, if I need to upgrade ill then look at some Sachs performance clutchs.

    Where do u get a copper line instead of the one that's on there and how easy to fit

    copper line?
    the current BMW hard lines are far better than copper brake lines, so i'd stick to BM, unless there is a problem
