    Hi guys

    I have a JB Racing flywheel and OEM LUK (self adjusting) clutch fitted to my e46 M3.

    This seems to give a inconsistent pedal feel.

    Does anyone know what my options are for a new clutch that uses an non self adjusting cover and also has a sprung friction plate ?

    Cheers Dan

    An E34 M5 clutch will work or what I'm using on mine is a jbr flywheel with a clutchmasters clutch and pressure plate.

    I used a LUK clutch like yourself and had no issues. I’d never run a LTW flywheel again though, NVH went through the roof!

    Speak to TTV for advice and mention me - On the race car I have used Tilton, Helix and have the M5 plate in another car and they just aren't as nice as the current TTV setup. Its a UK company to so the backup is excellent. I also ran a road/ track setup before from them and it was like oem but half the weight.
