    Sachs flywheel and clutch kit from techniclutch

    Just ordered a Sachs flywheel and clutch kit from techniclutch

    Anyone dealt with these guys. They were about 80quid cheaper than GSF and Eurocrats parts. They have guaranted that it's genuine Sachs

    I remember reading alot of issues about their unbranded clutches and such, but I cant see a problem if it a sachs part providing the part numbers the same as the £80 more expensive ones.

    They assured me it was genuine. I'll have a look when I get it. I paid with PayPal so shouldnt be a problem.

    Hopefully it will be the real deal

    For an s3 maybe but not on a A3, iv had it done and cost me less than half of that, search clutch conversion from carspares.

    I think you can get the valeo clutch off the internet, or buy the g60/ABF flywheel and vr6 clutch instead as that is the best reccomended conversion for our cars.
