    from audi? you're looking at the fat end of a grand. I understand they fit a new flywheel when changing the clutch.

    Clutch for my S3 was around 155 quid, new release bearing is around 40 quid, and I reckon labour should be under £200. Or if you have mates rates, then it should be nearer £100, if they are proper friends, they should do it for free, and you buy them a pub lunch haha.

    Only thing the guys says is hes only charging me 4.5 hours labour cause , al the other things have been noticed when its split down so its work he would have to do any way ! just a right scunner this close to xmas !

    Want me to make it worse?;)

    You could have no job, no money and a clutch to be replaced, as it stands just now you have a job..But still no money and no car..Feck! Don't think I could even scounge up 7p to donate to the bill at the mo.. :blow::lmfao:

    Never mind it will get better:blackrs4: :thrashi:
