    has anyone else had a clutch fitted by Mr Clutch ?

    the last owner of my 1.8T A3 had the clutch done by them. the car has done around 10K since is was fitted, as now its starting to slip and its sticking a bit as it stinks of buring clutch when i park up or stop

    the car has had a few mods done do it which may of taken some life off it.

    has anyone else on here had a clutch done by them, if so is it any good ?

    thanks for any help Jay

    Well i would be dissapointed that a clutch lasted 10k for a road car, even the odd track use it should last longer..
    If you are sprinting it all the time however thats a different story...

    Well documented fact that Mr Clutch installs **** clutches. No wonder they are so cheap...

    Bit off topic but employement at a Mr Clutch is up there on my "worst jobs in the world" list. The thought of fitting clutches day after day, and not even good ones....
