    i know it's all dependent on type of use the car has had.

    but at what age and mileage?

    or is your a high mileage muncher and going strong?

    whats a good budget to set aside for this job?

    My original clutch and DMF was done at 163k. The previous owner did tow caravans in it but other than that the car had a very gentle life. Costs will depend on the car.....Quattro's are more expensive apparently
