BMW trans adapter plate- new option

I saw a post of FB about this new product from them over the weekend. They mentioned that a specific flywheel and clutch will be coming and will be advertised soon.

I have no affiliation with these guys- other than wanting to see more strong manual trans options available in the market.....

I think it's a great thing, These guys really seem to be making some cool things for the 60x. I had seen their throttle cabel adaptor the other day as well.

All good stuff

FYI, I emailed them to ask if this adapter plate would work with the BMW Getrag 5-speed in addition to the advertised BMW ZF 5-speed.
The answer was "Yes" and that all transmissions that were mated to BMW inline engines can use this adapter.

Yes I've seen this as well. Pretty sweet, it should make transmission options alot easier in the U.S especially!  I'll be buying one when I'm ready to start my build

I dont get how the starter can engage with the different bellhousing in the way. Or do you have to buy their specific flywheel and clutch?

$200 isn't bad for the R&D involved. Would probably cost you $100 to have a shop bust one out

I am using one, but i gotta say it was nowhere near right on the ZF side of things for a ZF320 from a US E36 M3. I had to redrill a couple holes but eventually got it to work. The Custom flywheel they sent weighs damn near 60lbs so its a bit heavy, the clutch disc and pressure plate are E34 M5

So the clutch and pressure plate options are for e34 m5 stock models? And I am trying to see what else can be done to do the parts sorting somewhere else.. shipping would be outrageous!! Just very concerned about trying to know where to start with the custom flywheele.
