    I changed my DMF in my DSG A3 about 6-8 months ago or so. I couldnt afford a clutch at the same time so just went with the DMF. It seems to be having the same clattering and problem as before so it looks like its going again. Should it go so early??

    Hi guys I'm dave from vagoc

    when I had my s3 8p I used have a look over this forum but not much of a poster


    My s3 got stolen about 2 years ago, I then brought a evo 8 but the build quality of jap cars is terrible so I sold that and now have my golf r

    The golf is stage 2+ and my clutch is starting to slip so it's time for a new one, let's hope we can get some members together and get a good price!!

    Don't suppose a clutch and fly change for standard items on the 3.0 tdi would be able to join in?

    quick noob question here. wit the LOBA kit, is it the clutch and a flywheel replacement? im kinda confused, does the clutch just move the flywheel? so when people say clutch upgrade its really just a flywheel?

    Iv read through the website description and it just says about a clutch cover. Im so bad with cars...

    Have we got a price on this yet?

    I've found my clutch kit and dmf at a reasonable price.

    How is the deal working? & where is the work being carried out?

    Thanks

    I'm down for a sachs clutch and cover ill source my own DMF flywheel thanks kindly, decided i dont want to go SMF route. Prices would definately be nice to know.

    Jamie-S i think this is parts group buy only - you can use your mechanic of choice to do the fit.
