    My clutch is wearing and in order to budget I am starting to research prices. Its got a bit of life in yet but trying to give myself a little bit of heads up.Mr Clutch wants £832 for clutch kit, dual mass flywheel and labour. I am not even going to Audi as it will be double that I'm sure! I have yet to ask my garage as they are closed for the weekend now. Any pointers advice? I live in Aldershot/Guildford area

    GSF OR TPS may be worth a try. Have the clutch fitted by a vag specialist as it's a pig of a job.

    I think just OEM. I will keep it as dual mass, after weighing up the pro's and con's I dont want to convert. Whats the life expectancy of OEM , I am at 80k , dont know if its the original clutch but assume it is.

    clutch life depends on how you drive it... mine is supposed to be the worse sepc for putting strain on a clutch (300lb/ft 2.5TDI and a fairly immovable qauttro drivetrain) and it's on 133k... I bought it expecting the clutch to need replacing soon and (touch wood) there's never been any sign of clutch slip, but after drivign a heavilly modified golf GTI that used to burn clutches, I am very careful and have the clutch all the way out before putting my foot down at all... all "races" are 2nd gear rolling starts only :)

    Is yours a quattro? Also, any particular reason for changing the flywheel too?

    My car is on 119,000 now, original clutch, and I keep expecting it to start slipping but no sign yet, fingers crossed!

    I enquired at my local Audi centre when I was in there picking the wife's car up from service as I'd read they had fixed price servicing for older vehicles. He quoted me £849 fitted for a new clutch, considering that's for a quattro I didn't think it too bad.

    No, not quattro. I want to price up for the full jobby, hence including flywheel !!
