Clutch is gone since I tuned it on the dyno. Anyone locally have an aftermarket clutch? I'm curious as to your driving impressions.

Going to swap in the next week or two.

I've thought about that myself. Coming from a Legacy GT and 300zx, those cars were kind of rare(ish) sights and the owners were typically enthusiast. With the 335i I don't get that same feeling of community. I've taken my car to the last 3 cars and coffee and I was the only 335i out there. (I've only owned the car 3months lol) Even though this car appeals to enthusiast, I think most owners have no clue of the potential it has...

lol...I'll keep a look out! it's funny I see about 3 or 4 335i's every morning on my commute to work and the drivers in all of them are older women. I know it's a small sample size and they could all have jb4, meth, etc. so I shouldn't judge

I think I see at least one every day too.....and it's NEVER modded and it's always some female or older guy going under the speed limit. And I drive right by them and they just look straight ahead, lol...

Clutch is in the mail, but I'm going on vacation next week, so I'll won't be around for a couple of weeks. The break-in, I'm sure, will kill me.

DPs are easy to do. Make sure you have the right external torx bits and a 16mm racheting wrench. I have the link to the DIY on my computer.

ghost can't get off during the week. I have a little one. So the weekend will be tough for me...I'll have to figure out something.

I've watched the video and it doesn't look easy even in that. And I've read through a lot of threads and it sounds like a kind of a bitch. It's tight and it's tough to get them tight. And you have to take quite a bit loose. Not difficult...just a pain and a little time consuming...

So you've done these same DP's on yours. So I can wait...I don't want to do this till you can help out....just for that reason.

Hey im from the Dallas area and there's quite a few E90 enthusiasts here in the area. Hey as far as the DP's go, me and my dad put them on my car and it was a bit tricky. Im not gonna lie, i was underneath my car for about 3 to 4 hours. The clamps that attach to the turbo's are hard to get on. There's not much space. I even had to pay my dad to help me. lol. Everywhere i checked they were going to charge me an arm and leg to put them on.

Im going to be in SA next weekend for graduation. Any meets out there next weekend?
