  • Valeo Clutch Disc

    Hi All,

    I just recently purchased a clutch kit for my M3
    (currently apart for a 2.5 rebuild). The kit came
    with the typical Sachs pressure plate and T/O bearing
    (identical to my old parts). However, the inclusion
    of a Valeo clutch disc worries me a bit. I know that
    Valeo is a reputable company - however, I don't like
    to see "made in Korea" on any of my parts. Also there
    is a minor (I hope) difference between my old Schs
    clutch disc and the Valeo disc. Both look similar
    (fiber portion and large springs) however my Sachs
    clutch has an additional "ring" surrounding the
    splined area embedded with small springs. My Valeo
    disc does not have this.

    Should I worry?

    TIA,
    Joe

    your clutch kit came with a sachs pressure plate and a valeo disc? That's odd, where did you order from?

    I bought a clutch kit from maximillians a few months back and all the parts were Sachs.

      Werd. Go with Sachs.... just because it might be a bit cheaper... it doesn't mean it will be safer....

        Strange...

        I'm sitting here with an original clutch for a E28 M5 / E34 M5 3,6

        There's both Sachs and Valeo written on it.. So it seems to me they're both oem suppliers

          I think you're right. I'll post some pics of both tonight.
