    Hello sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place!!

    Well to start i jumped in the car last nite (the wife drives it most of the time)

    put my foot on the clutch and its noisy as hell!

    Some people have said DONT get a Solid flywheel kit, but this was fitted 20k ago and was a genuine from tps at around £540 for the parts.

    Any one done this yet?

    Thanks :)

    Oh and its a 140 bkd but mapped

    Did mine last year as I was getting a lot of clutch judder, so bit the bullet and converted to solid flywheel and clutch kit from Valeo not had any issues with it .Mine also is slightly modified !!!! Cant remember the exact cost was @ £500 fitted by a good mate and spanner man.
    So in my experience go for it Danny..

    To be fair didn't notice any difference in noise but mine sounds like a tank anyhow lol
    straight thru 3" exhaust no boxes or anything,so depends what you mean by noise im guessing you mean clutch noise?
    id say not ,at least in my case....:blackrs4:

    You would have been better off fitting a Sachs organic set up as this is about the best you can get for a daily driver.
    Darkside Developments - Sachs 2.0 TDi 6 Speed 02Q Dual Mass Flywheel with Sachs SRE Performance Clutch Kit
    Fitting a SMF flywheel can cause issues with gearbox chatter at idle. there are plenty of videos on the net

    Ibiza tdi walkaround - milltek, mufflerectomy, smf noise - YouTube

    This is about as bad as it gets but this is because a light flywheel has been used

    Single Mass Flywheel Chatter - YouTube

    Fit the right clutch /flywheel and you will get good service from it. It's not the flywheel that gives the clutch it's ability to transmit power it's the pressure plate and clutch plate. That is why the Sachs kit is so good.
    As above don't buy anything from Techniclutch they have a poor rep .
    The DMF is fitted for several very good reasons as they improve gearchanges, reduce the transmission of vibration from the engine to the transmission .

    cheers karl.

    Ive put a genuine flywheel and clutch in 20k ago from tps so don't fancy paying £540 every 20k on flywheels haha the clutch will be fine but the noise is the bast**d flywheel :( haha
