SPEC clutch kits for the supercharged 2002-2009 Mini Cooper S are some of the highest quality performance clutch kits on the market. SPEC makes a high performance clutch option for any level of stock or modified Mini Cooper S. All SPEC clutch kits for the 02-06 Mini Cooper S include the pressure plate, clutch disc and applicable bearings.
A note on solid vs. sprung clutch kits: Mini Coopers come from the factory with a dual mass (or sprung) flywheel and a solid hub clutch. If you have previously upgraded to a solid disc flywheel, you will need to purchase a sprung hub clutch to maintain proper clutch operation. If you are planning on using your SPEC clutch kit with your factory flywheel, a solid hub disc is required. Please let us know what kind of flywheel you will be pairing with your clutch kit so the appropriate style disc can be ordered.
