    It lasted slightly longer than I though it would lol 1 month :?

    Can anybody recommend a clutch kit ?

    I have been looking and doing some research but uprated clutch kits are a tad over priced around £450 is that right or am I looking in the wrong places.
    Could I just fit a standard clutch in ? I can get a new one for around £140 and £100 fitted.
    The clutch that was in before had done 85K so a standard one should be ok for at least a year + would't it?

    How long do you expect to keep the car?

    If not long, get a new standard clutch and flywheel from buypartsby.com

    If you plan to keep the car longer, I would buy an upgrade clutch from Sachs - if your clutch has gone and the car has done over 85k, I would look into replacing the flywheel as well as the clutch release bearing as well.

    I dont plan on keeping the car to long I tend to sell up after a year and move on to something else.
    I have managed to get hold of a new sachs clutch kit and dual mass fly for £260 is that any good? standard replacement.
