My Ride: z3 coupe
f1 ebay clutch review vs spec

I have a m54 3.0 Z3 coupe. I changed the clutch for a spec stage one that cost me ~$700 since the begginning it never worked quite right. alwas slipped a little I blamed the CDV and removed it since it was rated at 450hp and I just barely did 219 but it still slipped. to make the long story short after checking several times for wrong installation, flywheel damage etc I decided to just change the whole thing. I bought an f1 ebay kit stage 3 with flywheel..

pedal is waaay softer than the spec , grip is perfect ! I'm very pleased with it.

there is a little chatter that is normal with a 6 puck disc when engaging at low rpm.

flywheel doesn't feel that much lighter. (I have used light weight flywheels before in 2 other cars I had and I remember the change being drastic)

any questions please ask
