BMW M3 gets racing clutch that he did not order

By Faiming_low on 08 May 2018

Attached Image According to Carscoops, an BMW E46 M3 owner had ordered a replacement clutch for his BMW M3 on Amazon but ended up receiving a very different-looking racing clutch...

Puzzled, the owner then went to an online BMW M3 forum to find out what he got instead. To his surprise, the owner got a clutch that features four discs. It also has a diaphragm spring which allows it to operate at temperatures of up to 400 degrees Celsius for short periods of time. It is reported to be able to withstand up to 900Nm of torque.


A motoring publication in the United States had contacted ZF and according to the German parts-making company, the clutch is not for sale to the public. Some forum members claim that it could be worth more than of S$40,000.

While it is pretty cool to get such a clutch, it is without doubt useless to the car as it does not fit the BMW M3 at all.
