Yes, the clutch needs to mate with the flywheel friction surface. Be gentle.

The e46 is a heck of a lot easier to work on than the e90, plus I'm kinda partial to owning a car with a dipstick. Also I don't want to have to pay the dealer every time I get a new battery. Besides,...

The 325 is a nice car to be sure, but you will regret not getting a 330. Wait for the right 330, the Camry will do until you find the right one. That zhp will hold its value far more than a 325,...

Skip the LW, go with a single mass. Not worth the extra money, but the single mass will be way cheaper. Also if you are only keeping it for a few more years then why not wait until its slipping?

Genuine BMW clear tail lights, corners and side markers are not rice. Amber is an ugly color.. Pretty much all new cars have no prominent amber because it looks cheap (IMHO).
