Unfortunately we do not have details on what other companies are offering nor can we comment and what we can tell you is that we are the leader in clutches designed for the BMW E39 M5 for the past many years and were previous M5board sponsors. We have designed a very successful line of BMW E39 M5 products and we are now entering the E60/E63/E64 M5/M6 market. Should your choice be made primarily on cost then this would be an individual choice vs feedback from members. We have one of our customers who posted this below on our SMG M5/M6 clutch product;
Thank you kindly for your reply. Most of us make choices based upon the balance of quality versus cost rather than either one alone. Obviously no one here wants to sacrifice quality but at the same time your competitor is a pretty big name in the clutch industry as well so that bodes well for the quality of their product too. If I were currently in the market for one I would want to make an educated decision based upon both of those. Since I am not, the second best option is to do research on the options until I am. Simple math easily determines what the cost difference is for both options but the quality difference is an X factor until you, the manufacturer, educates us on the differences of your product versus the competition. No one is asking that anyone bash the other companies product but if you could highlight the technical differences from your competition that probably were found during your research/marketability phase of development it sure would be appreciated. I prefer to better understand the quality differences that justify the extra cost of your part over the competitor. Who better than to hear it from the horses mouth? While I do appreciate seeing examples of customer feedback I find that it is less based upon technical reasoning than if I had discussed the details with the manufacturer themselves. As per your previous support of the E39 M5, and the positive reviews garnered, I have no doubt that your product is likely of stellar quality. I just want to better understand the reasoning for your considerably higher price point when compared to other well respected manufacturers? I don't believe I am being unreasonable with my request.
