    Not trying to be flippant , but what’s wrong with stock?
    When my clutch/DMF needed to be replaced what went in was an LUK clutch kit & DMF that was exactly the same as the factory LUK assembly.
    The clutch is as light now as it ever was, but much smoother to drive as I think my DMF had been failing slowly for quite a long time.......

    I believe the stock clutches (at least when my car was made) were either Sachs or LUK.
    I therefore went for an LUK kit and when I saw the factory-fitted parts that had been removed noticed with interest that they too were LUK.

    Until the current clutch has been removed and examined you won’t know which make it is .
    Using a site such as www.oemepc.com you can look up which brands of clutch were used .
    I’ve just had a quick look now and for the 2012 model with 2.0 TDI e.g CBAA,CBAB,
    CFFA and CFFB codes
    still seemed to use either Sachs or LUK .
    Best check what engine code yours is though and have a look?
    Edit; I just see it’s in the thread title!
    ....and the answer appears the same.....Sachs or LUK.

    Ok so if I buy luks and currently has Sachs will it fit?cause I don’t have the luxury of having the car immobilized until the replacement part arrives

    Yes, they were the same design clutches, just a different maker .
