    Just ordered a Sachs flywheel and clutch kit from techniclutch

    Anyone dealt with these guys. They were about 80quid cheaper than GSF and Eurocrats parts. They have guaranted that it's genuine Sachs

    I remember reading alot of issues about their unbranded clutches and such, but I cant see a problem if it a sachs part providing the part numbers the same as the £80 more expensive ones.

    Rather have my car off the road and take the bus than use anything from Techniclutch quite frankly!

    The Sachs SRE single mass flywheel and clutch conversion is over a grand mate, i think you're talking about stock dual mass flywheel and clutch !

    They assured me it was genuine. I'll have a look when I get it. I paid with PayPal so shouldnt be a problem.

    Hopefully it will be the real deal

    I think you can get the valeo clutch off the internet, or buy the g60/ABF flywheel and vr6 clutch instead as that is the best reccomended conversion for our cars.
