These are excellent...............
Have got a stage 3 paddle in mine and I can recommend them thoroughly.
Errrr........wrong, the CSi clutch DOES NOT fit on
the M5 flywheel. It is over 1.5" bigger. To fit this you must change the flywheel also for a single mass aluminum purpose built item.
Also, bear in mind the CSi "only" had 380bhp whereas the M5 has 400bhp so no upgrade there unless you use a performance CSi clutch.
For the road use a stage 2 or 2 plus for agressive drivers, a stage 1 if you just want an improvement over stock.
Err..........394hp (not 400hp) (14 hp-wow!) and
the V12-CSi has much more torque than the V8.....The CSi ("stock") clutch will perform well and you will not have the same issues as with the M5 clutch...(I know, I own/drive both of these cars)

Hope you don't leave us, stan!
Congrats on the e60 M5, but here's to hoping you stick around to help us DIYers as we do pile onto these boards!
I know I've been neglecting the regular e39 board since I jumped up from a 528i and started browsing here.
Any estimate for diy man-hours on the clutch changeout?
