I have a '98 BMW Z3 with 140k miles on it. It is in good shape & well taken care of. I took it in to a new mechanic (my previous mechanic shop closed) for a routine oil change & he found a transmission leak (he showed it to me). He suggested that since he has to take apart the transmission to fix the leak, he would recommend replacing the clutch since it has 140k miles on it. His prices seem ok except that if he has to end up using the “Dual Mass Conversion Kit” he quoted a price of $900 & I can find it on line for $460. Total cost for using the Dual Mass is $2060, if he only has to use the regular clutch kit it’s $1460. He said he won’t know if he’ll need to use the Dual Mass until he pulls the transmission apart to see if the …I forget what it’s called (inset proper term here) is able to be resurfaced & then he could just use the regular clutch kit, but if not then he’d have to use the Dual Mass Kit. So my question is…should I have the clutch replaced & is the price reasonable?
Thx for your help!
