m5 clutch

Seeing as people in this forum are more likely to have upgraded their clutches, I figured I would get input here. I just ordered a JB Racing flywheel and I would also like to replace the clutch while I have the engine out of the car, particularly when switching to a single mass flywheel. If I were to go to an m5 clutch, all I would need is the pressure plate and clutch disc, correct? If anybody has suggestions for a similarly priced clutch, I would be interested to hear your opinions as well.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but (other than holding capacity), the main reason people switch to the M5 clutch is because it's not self-adjusting.

I couldn't exactly say, my project isn't for a stock engine. I went with the M5 clutch because I was switching to a single mass flywheel and it is sprung hub. I bought the flywheel from Turner.

Correct, when switching from a dual mass to a single mass flywheel, this is especially important.
