    Im getting mine from the us, there is a guy called Ed (username JCB i think) on here somewhere who can supply uprated items.

    For my S3 a southbend uprated to about 360lb/ft clutch and single mass flywheel came in at about 700 ish with shipping, i was quoted near a grand for just the clutch over here!

    I got mine supplied and fitted from APS (speak to Ed)

    The price of the Sachs clutch and OEM DM-Flywheel (Luk) wasn't too bad but obviously the labour costs bump up the price considerably.

    If you can DIY you'll save a packet.

    AMD were offering half price fitting on Sachs clutches. I had this done with a new OEM flywheel fitted 6 months ago.

    They may still be offering this, worked out alot cheaper.

    Take a look on there forum section.

    will a std clutch setup cope with a remap and sports cat or upgrade time? had a map today and its started slipping. i can get all std parts trade or will it not hold up to the remap
