    Standard clutch is generally considered fine for remapped cars up to about 300 torques, mine was fine as standard until a remap whereupon it occassionally slipped, new clutch and flywheel later £1360 lighter and all is happy with the world again

    All done by Plymouth Audi, best bit was I was able to get back the cost of the flywheel and the labour from the company that provide the warrantee I bought a week after buying the car, so it only in effect cost me £300.

    Sounds expensive for the clutch though. Cost me about £500 from an indie. Clutch, slave cylinder and cleaned up flywheel. Happily copes with the remap but wondered how much more they can take. I guess the OP needs a heavier duty one
