    Worth the extra premium, weight and less mpg over a 2wd ?

    Expensive for a small car, BMW E39 530d and E46 330d territory.

    Advice, and must do mods.

    Has it a dual mass flywheel and is it best to convert to single mass ?

    Will a Stage 1 + 50bhp & 50ft lb remap kill the clutch.

    And what conversion and or clutch for Stage 1 for a near stock feel ?

    Many thanks.

    Cheers Fran & a merry Christmas.

    Its confusing as the 8L seems to be S3 city, and there's the diesel forum too.
