    herky-jerkys(yo-yos) are exactly what I got when

    I put one into a heavily modded '72 Beetle.

    Bimmerworld claims to have a combination

    that's great all around. I'm really wanting to hear someone that's used a LTW flywheel on the street in an equivalent car. the downside to it is the possibility of the herky-jerkys and clutch chatter.

    Thanks for the tip, I would not have known

    which one to pick if my clutch ever wears out.
    Any other quality brands that come to mind?

    I'm of a similar mindset. to help with DBW delay

    and the overall feel of a quicker revving motor, I'd consider it.

    In fact I hope Ghollis does it that I can find out his feedback and whether it's awesome or utterly ruined the car. LOL

    It's personal preference, certainly>

    but stock items (on pretty much any car) usually move towards isolation, whereas I prefer, within reason, a bit more tactile response. Couple that with the fact that quality aftermarket parts are often in the same price range as OEM and for some it's a no-brainer.

    My SSK in my '01 330 was far superior to the stock unit in accuracy and feel for example. A stouter clutch with more feel in the takeup would be nice too. Nothing to do with drag racing.

    ~49K. It's been going on for probably the last

    5K miles or so, intermittently. It's a 2004 model.

    You may recall a few months back, I was asking clockboy about results of folks using a lightweight flywheel in a non-M E46. I was thinking about upgrades myself while it's apart.

    See the HBWT clutch advice up above. That's what I

    believe too.
    I'm sure there are better clutches and pressure plates, but for the street it's probably overkill to deviate from stock. There's no real good reason to abuse the clutches in our cars. They are not drag racers, and it's a waste to treat them as such.
  • 06-15-2010, 12:54 PM

    NO...keep the stock one in place...unless you plan

    to track it a lot.
  • 06-14-2010, 04:32 PM

    what's your mileage?

  • 06-14-2010, 04:32 PM

    LTW flywheel FTW!!! :-)

  • 06-13-2010, 02:37 PM

    I meant regarding OE parts

    Are you kidding?

  • 06-12-2010, 06:35 PM

    Same in mine bro. I think it's T/O bearing

  • 06-12-2010, 10:58 AM

    Check out your Bell Curve theory; you just happen

    to be at one end of the curve.
    What do you mean by upgrade? You'll not do better than the oem clutch, pressure plate, TO bearing, etc. if you just drive normally.
