Hi guys,

Spoke to UUC today about their clutch kit for the M5. Apparently it makes a huge huge difference with its lightened flywheel aswell.

Anyone treid it out or have it?

You will be able to buy them from the UK very soon......watch this space!

They are around $3600.

Apprently selling like hotcakes over in the US. Meant to make a very big difference.

The UUC biggie clutch is 50% larger than stock and it's the ONLY oversized clutch system sold for M5. The larger swept area offers higher torque ratings and better heat management under severe duty. The UUC oversize clutch is the same size as you find in Corvette. The stock M5 240mm (9-5/8") clutch is MUCH smaller than what you find in many 200 HP cars and it's the same size as BMW uses in some low performance 6 cyl gas & diesel cars. The tiny clutch is a chronic problem for many owners who have repeatedly replaced it and absorbed huge labor fees and continue to live with a marginal design that limits performance.

Heavy duty aftermarket clutches in stock size do not meet the needs of certain M5 owners, so this is a welcome niche product. Many folks gladly absorb the extra material cost to achieve a desired result.

There are many threads on this subject.

Excellent!

So there is a real demand for this brilliant item then. UNfortunately not alot of people can get hold of it in the UK from a dealer.

I may be getting these kits into the UK if I get 5 or more orders along with a full range of UUC products.
