Following on from the numerous posts I have seen regarding clutch slip on the S3 I have decided to do a poll to try and gauge how much of a problem it is and when it is likely to happen.
This issue concerns me because there does not appear to be a 100% solution available for it. We can get an uprated clutch (eg Sachs) and run it with the OEM DMF. However from what I understand the OEM DMF is weak and is likely to fail again.
We are able to replace a DMF with an SMF but all cars I've read about which have done this have had problems with gear engagement at high RPMs.
The clutch issues with the S3 is really putting me off increasing the power and torque output of my car past stage 1 at the moment as I do not want to be worrying about my clutch each time I go WOT.
So please discuss and vote on poll with the options which are applicable to you and remember that the poll is multiple choice.
If you have had your clutch replaced with an uprated one please post stating what it is and how many miles you have had on the new clutch and DMF/SMF without issues.
My car has had Revo Stage 1 for the last 12k miles and so far I have had no clutch slip.
