    Driving along today and the clutch has started to show signs of slip. Given that the car has covered 180k I am not going to get too upset.
    The car is a 1.9tdi quattro with a stage 1 remap.
    What are the opinions on the current fly wheel? To be honest I think this is the original clutch as it was a rep mobile for the first 4 years when most of the miles were done and there is no record of a change.

    I would like to go for an updated clutch as it is the weak point of the car.

    I would like brand recommendations and opinions on going single mass.

    I recently had the same problem with my clutch, various different people had many ideas of which route to go down. So in the end I just replaced the clutch and DMF at the same time. My wallet was crying when I collected the car but it now feels like a new car.

    Was really hoping to see what aftermarket clutches people had used. Looking to upgrade as thestandard one struggles with the torque

    I will go stock:AVF have 240mm clutch,which is much stronger like AWX clutch 288mm;flywheel is not necesary to change it,check it first.
    180k miles is enough even for a clutch without remap.
