    Spec Stage 2+ and Steel FW - Anyone have success?

    This may be my set up I plan on installing within a week or two on my 08 335xi.

    Just wondering how durable these clutches are for somenoe who NEVER launches, never goes to tracks, but just likes to feel those turbos kicking in while in gear.

    Currently have original clutch system from new at 120,000 miles. Basically run methanol as a DD, occassional E85....just looking for this clutch to last.

    Many are running this setup by now with great results. No launching will only prolong its life even more. Here is some details on it:

    I just installed the Spec Stage 2+ clutch and steel flywheel. The install was performed by me and a friend who only had brake and oil change experience, now he's in the big leagues. l myself have about 20yrs of experience and it wasn't to bad on Jack stands.

    I now have have 86 miles on this setup and it's working great. I only get clutch chatter every so often and the pedal is stiffer than stock. The initial impression was the clutch grabbed really low but now it's about the middle of the clutch pedal travel. Personally I am very happy with


    P.S. Dzenno has great customer service and communicated during the whole ordering process ensuring I was getting the right parts.

    SPEC Stage1 with steel Flywheel on 08 E90 XI . The car is used as a DD with no launches, normal driving. Components perform well; notably better than stock, customer service is a work in progress. PM me if you need details.
