    Interesting....
    When I had a new OEM clutch fitted at AUDI under warranty on my last S3 the new one didi feel firmer but I could never decide whther that was because it was new, or a stronger unit.

    IF I end up back an S3, I will only go to Stage1 anyway so as long as a MY12 car can stand up to that I would more than happy.
    Its a tough call because I will not be fitting SACHs or the like, and couldnt live with a stock S3.
    DSG was too much to stomach @ an extra £60/pcm!. Pah!

    Cheers

    Know what you mean, I looked into RS3 and the monthly payments nearly doubled with a bot of tinsel on board. By my reckoning whilst I know its by far the superior car there is a ceiling cost for me where if I spend above and beyond it will just **** me off. So I put enough deposit in to get the right monthly figure and tailored the options to suit. Only dickish thing I forgot was lumbar as I stupidly forgot it wasn't standard item! What a tw@t!

    Firstly why would i lose out on a free clutch replacement, secondly the car is up for sale so it would be of no benefit to me :)

    On your advice I have specced the lumbar, (+ light pack/through load/comfort) although its pretty disgusting a car like this doesnt have lumbar it in the first instance then AUDI relieve you of £200 for the pleasure.
    Wanted the buckets too, to keep my leg from bashing those daft centre console struts but at £90 pcm that was another option scratched off the list.
    In fact if add open sky (nice on Ibis cars), buckets and DSG to comfort/ light packs + other bits and pieces you are over £700 pcm. You can get an E92 M3 AND change for that FFS! (and 18 mpg, and thousand pound dealer visits of course....)

    cheers

    My MY10 is running OEM clutch with 39k kms on the clock.
    I've had Stage 2 for about 5k kms and no signs of slippage yet.
    Touch wood!!!!
