    Clutch Slipping? Replacement?

    Hi my a3 has been revving a lot whilst in gear, whilst moving off and commonly whilst in gear, so i've figured that its slipping and its been like this for a while as it does it in gear 2, after having a read online would i need to replace the fly wheel aswel?
    Also ive had a look at audi and they want 749 for a new clutch! and 839 for a flywheel! but ive had look on ebay and found these?

    thanks in advance for the help!

    Absolutely right....if you buy cheap bits,you usually get cheap results,and then end up spending more to fix it properly.

    Generally,you may get a warranty against outright failure,but once the part is in use,wear becomes the warranty issue.
    Personally,I would forget that side,and just buy good parts.....they will last much longer than no-name cheap bits.

    Is the LUK one any good? as that was what was recommended by euro car parts and a lot of clutch specialists around
