    Whats that like for the ride? pretty similar to standard? with the s3 is wasn't reccomended here cos it made it so crap! i'm guessing it must be different for the mk5's and very nice looking car :) maybe i will go with black wheels :P

    S3 Clutch

    I will have to look through your build thread and see what you have been upto... I'm guessing flywheel is recommended to be changed at the same time as the clutch? I have ordered one just incase that can be sent back if I don't use it!
