I have to agree. It totally amazes me that you can pound these cars all day at the track and the clutches just seem to last forever. Quality engineering, no question.


(I also saw a stripped down S14 the other day, this car has done over 100,000 Miles, gets tracked regularly and you can still see the honing marks in the bores, makes you realise just how good a job BMW Motosport did)

If it's your daily driver and you install a sport clutch you will hate life. Unless you're making over 225HP, the stock clutch is more than adequate anyway, not to mention a hell of a lot cheaper :^)


Hi all.
It's time to change the clutch and i wonder what are your thoughts and suggestions as to where, what, how much.
