    Hi!
    Well my clutch will give up soon,so i will need a new one better and stronger!
    What do you recommend and where to buy for the lowest price? Maybe group buy anywhere?
    The car is currently Stage2 325HP and 455NM.
    Thank you

    well maybe just order the sachs from germany, will probably be cheaper. If you want from UK speak to ED at APS, thats where i got mine from.

    The OEM DMF from here LUK Clutch Kit | Audi S3 2.0000 2007 | BuyPartsBy This is where i got mine from and it was almost 3 times cheaper than the dealer price.

    Yes the sach is the one to go for, good for the power but a touch stiffer than a standard clutch, and as s3kel can vouch it when taking off from a standstil

    mine is sachs + single mass. i am happy with the set up but as you know it makes a diesel like sound when in neutral.
    AFAIK southbend is very stiff on the pedal.
