I am certain that it is on its way to failure. I am just wondering how much warning this is giving me before stranding me somewhere. Another very common indicator of a bad flywheel is a burning smell which is the effect of too much heat in the clutch that is as a result of unnecessary clutch driving. But I have the classic symptoms, slightly erratic idle first start in the am especially when it is cold, no power under 3k. It is not the same vibration problem that occurs at or near idle when people hear gears rattling. I don't have the vibration, that may be coming next. Stock flywheel weight - 25.
The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance. If you treasure your car, make sure to use only quality parts to maintain it. My car only slips in 4th when driving hard. I believe the single mass flywheel is much less risky for the 2. They have called the mechanic to answer questions about the install and they continue to answer my questions about an issue with my transmission. The stock steel flywheel feels lazy in comparison. I know what it is when the engine bucks because it is out of its best torque range at low speed.
All parts in this kit come with a two year warranty. Thanks so much for the great service from start to finish, and always done with a smile and as professional as possible. This makes shifting faster and rev-matching incredibly easy. And you really should replace your flywheel while you're there anyway. The M54 engine has much better low end response than either of those cars. As a result they have become bloated in weight and that means more energy is used up just making the flywheel spin. Aluminum flywheels are considered 'single-mass' flywheels because they do not have the same dampening designs as an original 'dual-mass' flywheel.
So I think I've ruled out the engine mounts could be the trans though. First used in potter's wheels fly wheels are now widely used in the automobile industry. That is coming off as soon as the weather warms up. In this case the older engineering was more dependable. They have been totally up front and honest with me from the time I talked to them before the purchase and throughout the installation.
The flywheel is not part of the clutch though they work hand in hand. The reason it is bucking when cruising 45 mph in 4th or 5th is a lack of low end torque. Modern flywheels are built with additional components and features that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. Lightweight flywheels have proven themselves to be a worthwhile performance enhancement. It took a few days before I heard any noise at all.
The steel helps dampen vibration and noise so you get near-factory refinement and most of the benefits of a lightweight flywheel: quicker throttle response, better reliability, and more power to the wheels. The clutch was installed by Turner Motorsports sure you've heard of them , and even they commented at the time on how nice the kit was. Intense vibrations when using the clutch are another common indicator of a bad flywheel; these vibrations can be felt at the floor of the vehicle and occur due to a faulty spring mount mechanism of the flywheel which causes an inability to moderate the tremors as the driver uses the clutch. Has anyone else on this forum had a similar experience and if so, how long were you able to drive it like this before a bigger problem developed? If I drove more aggressively, I am sure it would become a bigger near term problem. Buying a good used one means that they could save a few quid and perhaps do the same with their own flywheel recouping the cost? Thanks for a thoughtful reply. For some reason the power output is being reduced.

Peter Just as an update, after doing more reading, I have a fairly high level of confidence that my issue is my vanos seal. I have been riding motorcycles and driving manual transmission cars for about 40 years. For some reason the power output is being reduced. Drive your M5 the way it was meant to be driven!! There is a driving adjustment required to get used to how much faster the engine revs but that's not really a downside. I had 145K on my 528it when it slipped.
. I have bought both clutch and flywheel but have since read on M5 board that the flywheel is ok until 2nd clutch. There is a driving adjustment required to get used to how much faster the engine revs but that's not really a downside. Maintain your performance car or truck in fine form by placing an order for quality automotive parts at our well-supplied web store, where you'll see that our live customer service experts will guarantee that you get the right parts. Even normal street cars should plan for a new flywheel if it has high mileage. It also helps reduce vibration and keeps gears operational when the clutch is used and is quite essential especially in manual transmission engines.
I seem to recall that a small plastic piece in the assembly was broken which caused the clutch to fall out of alignment with the flywheel and wear unevenly, so the clutch meat was essentially worn on one section of the disc, but fine on the other. The issue has not been back. Dual-mass flywheels contain a rubber damper or hub that will, like all rubber components, wear out with time. The weight difference between an aluminum and steel flywheel is huge - sometimes more than 50% less. Is the flywheel part of the clutch? I will be replacing both flywheels with the single mass style along with a non adjustable pressure plate. They should be treated like any ordinary wear item. The whole drive train shudders when this happens and then runs smoothly and accelerates normally.
