Aftermarket Clutch Options

Hi guys.

I tried searching but did not have much luck. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction regarding my options for an aftermarket clutch.

I find the clutch pedal feel in my 08 E92 to be quite soft. It feels very light and am looking for a stiffer more engaging solution. What are my options for a stiffer clutch?

Is it possible to achieve something similar to a 997 with respect to the clutch feel?

Thanks

pak

you're not getting the true feel, it feels soft cause of the clutch spring. You can remove that, but I don't mind it. Also not really a reason to do a big job like swapping the clutch just cause it feels weird right? It works fine, then leave it alone.

But if you really want A/M
OS Giken and I think Spec makes a pretty decent clutch.

Have heard rumors of an ACT but don't/can't find it so I dunno about that

OEM is more than capable..there are guys SC'd who have no issue with it.

ACT doesnt make an application for the M3..I had the ACT on my 335i b/c the OEM couldnt take the 400 ft-lbs of torque that a tuned 335i was making and started slipping (ahhh the gold ol days )

As stated..clutch spring removal may improve feel..I personally like everything as is right out of the box on the M3

ACT makes a clutch for the 6MT M3. PG got one on his car.


OEM clutch is more than enough. I've had my stock clutch SC'd and was replaced at 50000 miles with one time slip per the BMW computer at 30000 miles and it was reset and never happened again.
Im running a stock now on my VT3 built motor and no issues.
