    The way you're describing the clutch makes it sound aftermarket, but clutch weight to different people is a toss up. To me the stock clutch was feather light and the 3+ is light too. I drive it 80 miles through traffic each day and its nothing. To others the Stage 3+ is "heavy". Neither of those compare to my 92 Ford Explorer which doesn't compare to my 5.0 in clutch weight even. So its basically a crapshoot trying to talk to people about clutch weights.

    To be honest it doesn't really matter since you're going to drive it anyway. If it is an aftermarket clutch and stronger than stock it has to be an HPF or stage 2+ or better id think.
    Yea that is true it depends on the person. To me it 100% felt stiffer than the E90 I felt, B8 S4, B6 S4, and E92 m3.

    Hahaha that's a valid point. How do I quote multiple people instead of replying individually to each?

    Just spoke to the owner of the shop that works on my car and he has a borescope. When I drop it off in two weeks i'm adding that to the list of things to be done so I guess I willk now for sure then. What colors correspond to what? I know Blue is spec, Yellow ACT, then what?

    Its actually easy with the HPF, slip the clutch and see if it welds itself to the FW lol.

    Hmm. Interesting. I suggest you put Vargas Stage 3 or a huge single on it and see where the clutch slips. You know, as an easy way to determine without the complexity of finding and using a borescope. Just trying to help.

    I have an 08 135i, my GF has an 07 335i. From experience i can tell you, both feel much different even though they are stock. It's weird but very few identical cars that i have driven back to back feel the same. The engagement point, the pedal feel...both can vary even on similar cars. Hers is on the lighter, springier side while mine is stiffer and grabbier.

    Also at 76k im just beginning to see signs of slippage in 4th gear and up, before that the tires give before the clutch. This is with Dinan/JB+ stack on e30 and a lot of powershifting

    Hahahahaha i've read about that. In that case I don't think it's HPF. A long time ago I did a few launches which were my first ever and I slipped the clutch way too much and you could smell burnt clutch and it was fine.

    Yea I know what you mean different people definitely have different tolerance for stiffness, however, everyone i've let drive my car has said how stiff the clutch feels. Also it's not even close to the M3 I drove, a lot more stiff
