Default Need some in on what type of clutch to put in my 09 135 - 11-06-2016, 08:19 PM

What's going on guys I just bought a space Gray 2009 135i in stick I drive 4 hours to go and look at this car and I ended up buying it and it has 75k miles and I don't believe it's ever had a clutch job so I am currently running stock clutch and its grabbing pretty good but I feel it's going to go with in the next 8 months so what type of clutch would y'all recommend for a stock n54 but I do plan to do full bolt ons and a chip. Not looking to do any kind of crazy set up possibly down the road some type of a stage one turbo kit. I have always had good experiences with ACT in my STI please give me some info here considering I am a n54 newbie thanks

Get an Mfactory smfw then MHD flasher raise idle rpm to 1000 spec stage 2+ or the clutch I just mentioned and call it a day, your call.

With fbo stock turbo... go with stock flywheel and 335is/550i clutch. I run this setup while one year and very very happy. No slip, same engagement than stock

Now With my upgrade turbos , I run with single mass and spec 3+ clutch. I'm very happy with this combo.
