Clutch help (and brakes)

I have an 08 335xi. Currently Fbo. My clutch slips a bit in high gears, not sure when it needs to be replaced, I'm at 66k. My question is what would you guys suggest to replace it with? A new stock and flywheel? I auto cross and want to get on a road track a few times per year, but its my dd car... Can someone help me with my options for a clutch and flywheel?

Also I think it's time for at least front pads and rotors. Same question new stock or something else.

Thanks

Do you have any other modifications?

You have plenty of options, but if you are on stock power you may be happy with a spec stage 1.
If you plan on adding some power down the road you may want to look into a Spec Stage 2 or 2+ depending on your power goals.
I'd stay with the OEM DMFW.

We have a nice Rotor and Pad combo that may interest you on our site as well.

Feel free to email me with any questions.

I'm Fbo stage 2+ Cobb. I also run e85 some days. So about 400whp. I don't drag race, just a little autocross and road courses here and there

I assume I need a new flywheel? I've heard of others refinishing the old one with bad outcomes?

So i did more searching a read about act, spec, hpf, and clutch masters. The information out there is very convoluted. I am thinking on initial review that a spec stage 2+ will be adequate for my needs, and I'll need a new oem dmfw. While I'm shopping I need some new aluminum tranny bolts and that should be it.

I'm looking for some actual opinions from someone who has a spec installed. Any reason why I will wish i got something different?

Yes I would go with the Spec Stage 2+ considering your mods.

New OEM DMFW or Steel Single Mass if you can stand a bit of chatter.
