Dual Mass Flywheels are not turnable. UUC with he E34 m5 clutch is a good option. Or OEM is fine however the flywheel is pricy if it is damaged.

All Stock BMW's from 1995 on are

Some shops claim to be able to turn them. I would not trust it on the BMW's I have seen the flywheel separate at high mileage anyways

Honestly, no one from a test drive can tell you what is wrong till they pull it down to inspect. The best a test drive will do is tell you weather is mechanical(pressure Plate Flywheel ext) or Hydrolic
