    is it a 1.9TDI as iv got a fantastic GEN VAG DMFW with clutch plate in it up for grabs before you sling in a solid DMFL that may cause you more problems later.

    I was told that the solid ones shake the car to bits and the rest of the engine.

    They're not all like that. Mine (not an Audi, but a Seat) is no louder than standard
