My Ride: 2001 330i 5spd
Just had single mass flywheel installed

Hey, first post here now that i finally have my first mod done. I just had a F1 Racing Stage 2 Clutch & 15.85 lb single mass flywheel installed on my 01 330i. So far I love it and dont regret it but its going to take some real getting used to. The car has a completely different feel. I hadn't driven my car in 2 months, and before that the clutch had been slipping pretty badly for a while. So Im sure I picked up some bad habits trying to get the most of the old clutch before it died at about 140k miles.

Ive only gone about 50 easy miles so far, but I definitely notice how much more responsive and direct it feels. I'm only noticed the smallest bit of clutch chatter with the radio and heat off sitting at a stop light. I don't think its anything passengers would notice.

The uptake is VERY harsh if i dont pay really close attention to slipping the clutch from a stop. Is there any trick to a smooth takeoff on a single mass. I haven't had it cut off on me but ive had some pretty hard bucking starts. Ive driven manuals for years but now I feel like a newby all over again. Someone please chime in before i break something.
