E46 OEM Clutch Manufacturer

About to replace my worn clutch, I want OEM (same as sold from dealership) but I see many kits online for a better price. Does anyone know where to find an OEM clutch kit / who is the OEM clutch manufacturer for E46 BMW?

BMW designs with grace, I would feel most comfortable with using the same OEM clutch that is stocked in the E46.

Any info would be appreciated, Thanks!

Is there any chance "Luk" manufactures an aftermarket clutch that they sell? I'm curious because if it's the same manufacturer but a different part, there is a risk of the clutch being made to a standard that is lower than that of BMW.

-thanks

After removing the old clutch, I see that it says "LuK" right on the original clutch.

Luk & Sachs are found on BMW's leaving the factory. Luk also supplies the aftermarket industry and also provides clutch kits which are essentially the same without the BMW logo.

Here's my replacement, arrived a few days ago for E46 330. Also came with a throwout bearing and DMF bolts
