    Speak to rtech power, they can supply both Sachs and Helix.
    Helix has a greater torque/bph capability.
    I'm running the latter with no issues.

    You can buy direct from Sachs, the clutch is around 500euro

    http://www.jkm.org.uk/performance/clutch-audi.htm For the Sachs Organic clutch.

    And for the flywheel its http://www.buypartsby.co.uk/clutch-parts-buy.php.

    If your gonna do the clutch i strongly advise you mate it with a new flywheel as its a 5-6 hr job (just did it with my mate at the weekend) and i wouldnt want to do it again in a hurry lol !
    The flywheel is half the price Audi will charge for the same one LUK i dont know how they get away with it !!!!
    My car is transformed with the Sachs clutch, puts all the power down perfectly and feels indestructable without having a too stiffer pedal feel.
