    One word to describe it, WOW!!!

    What a difference, I had my remap done a couple of months ago and although the car was noticeably quicker my clutch was on its last legs so I wasn't able to reap the rewards of having a mapped S3.

    Thats all changed now:yahoo:. She goes like stink and pulls harder than ever. No more clunky gear changes, no more slippage... Even greater control and a super smooth power delivery that makes me smile every time. Top marks to APS who have carried out all my mods, its all been worth it and now I can honestly say the car has never felt so good.

    Anyone thinking of upgrading the clutch, just do it!!! It may cost ££££ but the Sachs kit is awesome and APS will certainly look after your car like its their own!

    Nice glad to hear, Want my remap doing soon aswell and my clutch wont like it as it does has its moments! How about the G60 single flywheel and clutch? I heard they were the best i may be wrong.

    I had a Dual Mass OEM Flywheel fitted (LUK) as well as the slave cylinder and release bearing done which was all included in the price.

    Not sure about the G60 single flywheel and APS didnt mention it so I stuck with what I knew would work and what I had read on here previously.

    So has the dogbone mount improved your gear change's and stopped gear crunching? Im asking beacuse mines started to get worse and im thinking about doing this!
    Also how much did the sach clutch set you back?

    Best thing to do is contact APS for a quote. http://www.autops.co.uk/

    For sure, certainly smoother mainly because things seem tighter if you no what i mean, there's hardly any engine vibration or jolting when changing gear or when starting her up.

    Well worth it + cheap and easy to fit.

    the G60 single mass flywheel and clutch won't fit the S3 6 speed box, whoever told you that was wrong.

    it does however, fit the 02J 5 speed box in the FWD A3, and it's awesome when ligthened.

    Glad you're liking it Maz, I know exactly how frustrating it is when a slipping clutch stops you using your new map to the full!

    I was told when i had my FWD A3 that is was best for the G60 clutch and flywheel, But now i own the S3 i thoguht the same.
    Can i still get shot of my dual mass flywheel? and would it be worth doing?
