I have a '99 T, 2.8 Q Avant with 117k on clock. The clutch has always engaged right at the top of travel and has been 'flagged' as needing replacement as far back as '95 occording to the history file. Now I have noticed a lack of 'bite' in that it will slip when trying for a spirited getaway. It seems fine during normal driving when the revs are more matched but if I did a 2nd gear pull away from a junction it sounds more like an automatic, but there is no juddering?! I mentioned this to my mechanic and he said it may well be on its final legs and best get it sorted before it goes completely. He also mentioned the dual-mass flywheel will need changing as well, followed by a moment of 'sucking air through teeth', as tradesmen do. I found a quote from Audi for £1100 +vat to change it back in '95. Is this for real?? Are there any other options open to me?? Any advice would be appreciated.
