    Its hard to say, it seems that the dual mass flywheels are a fairly common fault, its obviously going to be even worse on a tuned car.

    Is it a sachs flywheel you put on or the OEM 'Luk'? Maybe the sachs flywheels are better...

    there is no such thing as an OE Sachs flywheel I'm sure, I've done a lot of digging and can't find anything. There are plenty of lads running the uprated Sachs clutch with a new dual mass flywheel and they seem to be holding out. This is the route I'm going very shortly

    Yeah thats what you need mate.
    The oem LuK flywheel is the original dual mass flywheel in your car and the only dual mass flywheel available for it.
    Sachs dont make a DMF they only make the single mass flywheels.
    If you were to call Audi and order a new DMF they would supply the Luk and it costs a fortune from them !!
    Get it from www.buypartsbuy.com for 207+vat.
