So far so good..

Done about 4,000 miles on this setup and has held the power very well.. There is no harshness or vibration at idle.

The clutch is slightly more aggressive and is not completely OEM in feel. Pulling away from a stop will sometimes give a slight clutch rattle - like on a diesel. But a few more revs and its happy.

My girlfriend drives it without complaint so aint guilty of other race clutch complaints like other setups out there.

All in all very happy for the price.

Just the front steering arms and a full M3 Geo setup.

Feels good - improved turn in from what I can tell. Still needs some testing though - motorways aint so good for this!

I can't comment on his current prices. I just know what I paid then. I wouldn't be surprised if he made a loss to be honest. It was cheaper than buying direct from the USA without import duty. Have you checked the spec website pricing?

What he said that he did a mistake there so you were lucky. Straight from spec is the biggest price comparing with other vendors. And EU vendors goes even more crazy with the price.

BTW what about stock flywheel because my oem is dead and Im afraid that if I will buy oem new it will fail again. I wonder how much power oem flywheel can handle. And how noisy/not acceptable is single mass stainless steel for daily drive.

RimasRS.

I have a SPEC stage 2+ clutch and single mass steel flywheel for sale (for a Jan 2009-on N54)

SB533FH-2 pressure plate and hybrid friction plate
SB53S-3 single mass steel FW for 6 hole crank (Jan 2009 on)
Billet Release bearing

It's only done 600 miles and I took it off to sell the car.

Single mass was a bit too noisy for me as my car was a family car and my wife uses it too. But it's a great clutch and it drives great on the open road. If it was my own car just for me I'd have kept it on, it felt absolutely invincible!

Drop me a PM if you want more info. I've been meaning to sell it, just been busy.

If not I'll advertise it.
