    standard A3 1.8T? I would have thought standard clutch unless you have future plans for it or if the upgrade route is actually cheaper than the standard route

    not too sure about flywheels but i would have thought a DMF is more appropriate although more expensive i believe. Do you :keule:actually need a new flywheel?

    Hi mate thanks for the rep. Well im setting it up for a decent remap, its gt the usual 007p dv copdside relocated, and aftermarket carbon airfilter and miltek exhaust upto mani.
    If the upgrade is cheaper then ill go for that, its a dmf at the mo and i think its ok but iv heard vr6 clutch is a good replacement but its a smf so i dnt know what fly to use. Thanks agen.
