    Firstly, it's 'Dual'. Secondly, that price isn't 'too' extortionate for a garage, I paid about £750 recently for the flywheel, clutch, fluid, cylinder and labour. If you're not handy with a spanner then you might just need to swallow the cost.

    Regarding the oil feed pipe problem, I've no idea, but it probably hasn't helped things.

    H i dude, what car have you got? A3/S3? If A3 go for the solid flywheel nd clutch conversion as its cheaper than the dual mass alone. If S3 gutted lol.

    If that's a fitted price then that's not too bad... genuine LuK parts (same as OEM parts) cost around £400 from GSF and is best part of a days work to swap... I would also get the slave cylinder done too which is another 25 quid or so...

    If its the oil drain then you should be ok as long as you haven't ragged the car too much... get it done though..

    i just had a clutch and flywheel kit fitted for under £450. shop around mate dont go to an audi garage they will rip u off 9 times out of 10, also its easier to replace it with a solid mass flywheel to prevent future problems, and save many monies
