    Yes - mine has been in for 2-3 years now and still as stiff/heavy as it was when it went in

    I didn't find mine much heavier than the stock clutch to be honest,and even the current one is pretty easy on the leg....either way though,it's a much better clutch than the original,but it does need to be run in a bit before being used hard.

    It's definetly heavier than the oem by a large margin despite what people insinuate, not problematically heavier but definetly heavier.

    Death in gear from day one no problems just don't go mad slipping it for the first 500-1000 miles and definetly no launches.

    Yea I have the same setup, I was amazed how heavy it was compared to OEM clutch. Got used to it in no time, but it feels weird getting in to other VW/Audis now!
