    My clutch is getting towards the end of it's life now so when I replace it I want to get rid of the dual mass flywheel at the same time, are there any kits out there to do this or can it be pieced together from o.e parts?

    I think you can use an E30 M20 flywheel and starter motor to get rid of the dual mass. Im sure there is a bit of info on the net for this conversion...

    I've personally got a turners motorsport stage 2 kit. I soon realized how much torque was being lost to a slipping clutch. They have cheap deals come up all the time on blemished items. So if you don't mind that a bit of paint has flaked off the side of the flywheel i'd recommend this.
    Otherwise an m20 flywheel can be made to fit. Just need to upgrade the m20 pressure plate so it can handle the power.

    edit:
    After starting to drive with this setup in traffic more i've realised it is an absolute pig. Would not recommend

    The TMS kit might prove quite expensive in the end, after summing its price, shipping and custom fees, IMO. But I think the M20 conversion could do the job pretty good..
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    Sorry to drag this up again but single mass flywheel wheels seem to be available off the shelf for the s50/2.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...84.m1423.l2649

    Or will this work?

    My question is will a m3 clutch set up work on a 328i?

    If you go m3 clutch you'll need the clutch pp and flywheel.
    I've edited my previous comment about the tms flywheel and clutch setup

    f1 racing flywheels seem very popular over in the US(and quite cheap) clutchnet pp and clutches seem to be the other prefered option. This or m20 flywheel will be my next option

    i fitted an m3 (3.0) clutch, PP, slave cylinder and lightened solid flywheel to an M44 engine. made a massive difference in clutch grip and pickup (revs).
    easy to do, ring-gear is all the same. just check the release bearing and arm
