    Have you tried Eurocarparts?
    Not sure about having to replace the clutch at the same time with DSG.

    Have a look on eurocarparts, they usually have some sort of discount code for Clutch and DMF parts. Im not familiar with the DSG box but it's common practise to replace both parts to save yourself some money on the labour, I was told to do the same with my BMW.

    As far as I'm aware the DSG has clutch packs and not a traditional clutch.

    The idea is these last the life time of the car.......

    I have read some were that the clutch is ok but the DMF can warp on earlier models
    Might be a good reason to upgrade to stronger units from HPA Motorsport in Canada.
    This if you plan to get more power

    I got the same issue.. Needs new DMF but Does the DSG clutch pack need to be replaced at the same time?

    have been told the clutch pack swap is a job that only a few specialists or the steelers can do, and it's likely to be expensive.

    Can anyone advise on how long do the original clutch packs last?

    Cheers

    On DSG you just replace the flywheel

    Clutch kit and flywheel applies to manual gearboxes

    My DSG flywheel was around £570 from TPS just for the part

    Ok thanks all..

    Final question can the DMF being on its way out cause a stutter when pulling up a hill In 4/5/6 gear or in any High torque situation...

    So the flywheel slips not the clutch / gearbox?

    Noob question but it seems every technician I talk to about it seems to have a different opinion.

    Cheers

    The way I diagnose mine is knock/rattle on idle with box in N that gets worse over time
