    There are a couple of different plates for the S3 does anybody know what the differences are and which would be best for normal road use?

  3. I've just had a Sachs clutch fitted. Not sure on the name but its the 4 paddle one supplied by AMD. Also had the OEM pressure plate and needed a new fly wheel so went also for the OEM replacemnet.

    Initialy i though it felt a bit harsh but i think that was down to the fact that i was so used to a badly worn clutch. Now i think it feels just right. Can still carry out silky smooth gear changes, very easily, when driving steady but when you want to make a quick start from stand still it feels nice and sharp. Generaly, my gear changes now feel loads better- felt quite notchy before but with the new clutch it feels like a new gear box.
