LuK is the OEM clutch supplier for many BMW applications, including the E46. Because of this, we are able to offer our customers an OEM-quality clutch option that’s very economical. This is a direct OEM replacement for the 240mm clutch kit found in in the E46 328i and 330i vehicles.
BMW uses dual mass flywheels in these vehicles, so this clutch kit features an unsprung organic clutch disc. Engagement is smooth thanks to the organic full face disc, but is also quick because of the solid center.
Note that the OEM E46 pressure plate has a Self Adjusting Clutch feature (SAC). As the disc wears, the pressure plate adjusts height. If the pressure plate has to be removed for service for any reason, it needs to be reset on a shop press before it can be re-installed. If you’re looking to eliminate this feature to improve serviceability, upgrade to the ACT HD street clutch and pressure plate.
