View Full Version : Time for a new clutch...Suggestions?

12-16-2005, 09:44 PM
My rear main is leaking onto the clutch, it's not severe only about a quart every 4500 miles. I figured that since my last clutch was replaced at 110K and I'm at about 253K now then it time for a clutch while I'm at it. I'm looking for something with a little more bite. So who makes the best for street/strip? BTW I have 94 325i . Thanks

I am still on my original clutch on my E30325i with 230K miles. Sachs does make a "sport" pressure plate and clutch if I remember correctly. Not sure if Centerforce makes a clutch for BMW?
