    Just fitted my clutch

    Hey guys i just got home from fitting my clutch im my s3, I must say it was not as bad as i thought to fit, the car drives awesome again now, No slipping and the new clutch is actually lighter than standard.

    Just need the fuel prices to go down now so i can afford to use it again..

    Slipping is noticable when you are in say 3rd or 4th gear put your foot down and the car revs but the car dont move if u get me ???.
    It cost me £900 but i got a uprated flywheel and a heilex clutch .
    Drives very nice too.

    Im a mechanic anyway build gearboxes and fit clutches all day so it was not to bad for me,, By the sounds of yours it try bleading your clutch first before you go down the clutch route may just have some air in the system ??

    I take it, it's an uprated clutch right?

    I managed to get a used gearbox fully fitted along with a new clutch for under 800 all in!

    Bloody hell jeff, 900 on a clutch are you mad? Mine is gonna need changing soon, Fancy fitting mine along with the intercooler? LOL So is it worth me getting 1 for that price or just getting a standard 1 ? Do the uprated 1's last longer?

    Another thing jeff off subject, where did you get your pod for your gauges from?
