    Cost me 900 for a new clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, fluid and bleed, and 4 wheel alignment on my S3 that was with TTS. You may not need to replace the flywheel, sometimes these can be cleaned up and reused, mine had excessive play so was replaced. LUK are the clutches that Audi fit as standard.

    I think TTS have a fixed price for the clutch and slave cylinder replacement (600 to 650 iirc) euro car parts list 2 flywheels for the S3 dependant on year the one for my S3 is the cheaper of the 2 at 276.30 (the other is 382.40) although this is an online price and when i called them up i got a differnent price and so did TTS when they called them up. My final bill was 929 but i got a good deal on the flywheel in the end (had an OE one fitted). Even with out the deal on the flywheel it would have been about 1k as theres no additional labour envolved in the job, you gear selector may have required additional labour and parts.
