I have a strong feeling that the Clutch master kit that raz's is gonna install will be just fine. Why?? Because proper application, installment and use goes a long way. Clutches that are just burning up right & left and blowing up are more than likely because of mis-use & incorrect application. Keep in mind that the M5's stock Luk clutch is well know for being weak and some how they seem to last for tens of thousands of miles. 75,000 in my car and many other members cars aswell (if not more lol). Another thing is proper brake in of a clutch. I just installed a Spec stage 2 in my car and Specs says to put at least 500 city driven miles on the clutch before full engagement. Not to mention I doubt the stock clutches in are cars got much of a break in period when they were brand new. The dealers salesmen and the first owners probably got right in and started bangin gears as soon as they rolled off the truck. Granted this probably wasnt always the case but it's something to think about.
