You have to email the company. Spec or clutch master. They both have 2 different version one with oem flywheel or with aluminum. I know protuning freak has a dual clutch set up for a good price.

If you're going to do a new clutch then get rid of the DMF

You will get slightly more noise but gain durability/reliability

Upgrade to B58 clutch [same parts as F series 550i].

Could look at using dual plate clutch used on M2 ??

The M2 uses a dual clutch plate?

Do you know if it also uses a DMF?

Not a twin plate (or twin disc) clutch.. It's a dual mass flywheel with single sprung disc as per every other MT BMW we've seen in the last decade.

Here's the kit listed in your link by part # for clutch kit: https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-...s/21212284234/

Although, a factory twin disc (manual not dual clutch auto) would be fantastic as a standard.

Sold a few Spec 2+ for the M235i 335i and 435i. It's a good clutch for typical FBO and even upgraded turbos.
