    Where is the best place to get a Clutch from?

    Hi guys, those of you who have changed your clutch.. Standard or uprated - where did you get them from, rough cost of just the part please..

    Cheers.

    Im getting mine from the us, there is a guy called Ed (username JCB i think) on here somewhere who can supply uprated items.

    For my S3 a southbend uprated to about 360lb/ft clutch and single mass flywheel came in at about 700 ish with shipping, i was quoted near a grand for just the clutch over here!
    Absolute Red 8L S3 Revo, Hybrid Turbo, 3" downpipe, decat, Ds2500, FMIC 300bhp & 330 lb/ft

    ........ To Come, Sachs clutch & Fidanza lightened flywheel, BBS CH Reps, AP Coilovers, Rear tie arms & 20mm spacers & eventually MISANO red respray

    I got mine supplied and fitted from APS (speak to Ed)

    The price of the Sachs clutch and OEM DM-Flywheel (Luk) wasn't too bad but obviously the labour costs bump up the price considerably.

    If you can DIY you'll save a packet.

    AMD were offering half price fitting on Sachs clutches. I had this done with a new OEM flywheel fitted 6 months ago.

    They may still be offering this, worked out alot cheaper.

    Take a look on there forum section.
