    Just to mention I'll probably will be going Stage 2 so something decent to hold it.

    Thanks

    I have that clutch on mine(was already on the car) the only thing with it is it’s noisy when in neutral as the gearbox chatters, imtold it’s normal for single mass flywheels it’s not loud but it just sounds ****

    Hi bud,

    Thanks for you reply how loud is it? Is it annoying on the other hand you are rarely in a neutral gear anyway

    Thanks

    It it’s fairly noticeable especially with radio off and makes your hot hatch sound like a diesel when it needs replacing il go duel mass

    Yeah stick with dual mass flywheel.
    I think a few people are running the Sachs paddle clutch plate from badger 5 and then every thing else oem.

    So just to clarify if I am going to be running Stage 2 around 280bhp/300bhp tops would you say it's worth going for upgraded clutch or not

    I have been quoted around £380/£400 just for labour and around £340 for Valeo single mass conversion kit and around £500 for Sasch DMF and clutch

    My TT is running 275bhp and 300Lb/ft on the standard 90K mile clutch and it runs fine. If your not planning any more than 300Lb/ft I would just stick with OE stuff.

    The labour is apparently 9 hours (that was from the maintenance book when I got a quote). so £400 is probably right for labour then the clutch and release bearing/slave cylinder and flywheel is about another £800-£900

    I bet some people can do it much quicker than the 9 hours book estimate.
