Apologies for bumping this old thread, but has anyone fitted a better clutch to their S1 yet? If so, how does it feel? Is it more difficult to drive in traffic?

I have a Sachs clutch fitted I have gone for the sintered one which I have been told is very snappy but if you go for the organic one it is supposed to feel similar to the original Audi one. When I get my car back on Saturday I will be able to say how it feels @thewanted

Cool, thanks. I'm curious because I'm fitting my Burger Motorsports JB1 piggyback soon, and I have no doubt that a new clutch will have to follow shortly.

How many people would be actually interested in ordering a sach clutch ?
As may ask if they would offer some kind of group discount for all of us ?

Let's see if we can get at least 5 by mid week and I will have a ring around to see who can offer the best deal

Yeah that's what I'm thinking :yum:
I'm looking to go just stage 1 but after reading up seems like the best thing to do is the couch to make sure it can handle the extra load

Spoked to awesomegti
They can do 5 organic clutches for £460 but they said they would need to be all ordered in one go to one person then for them to distribute them to everyone else

Hey Tony,

Have you fitted the Sachs clutch yet?

Thanks for phoning. Unfortunately it's no cheaper when you factor in the shipping from you to us.

Does anyone know how much it should cost to have the Sachs clutch fitted?

Thanks :) I don't need more than the 407lb/ft offered by the organic version though. It should be easier to live with compared to the sintered version.

I think it's more like 6 hours. An Audi specialist near me in London charges £72 incl. VAT for labour. If we apply that price to Awesome GTI, then it works out to 5.75 hours.

£927 - £513 (clutch) = £414.
£414 / £72 = 5.75 hours.

Yeah I think there is a lot of striping down to access the clutch @thewanted

Yes fiited my clutch 2 weeks ago! Have been on holiday since so not had chance to update! Audi warranty time for fitting clutch is 8 hours including wheel alignment! Clutch takes some getting used to at first as its 2/3 times heavier but softened a bit after use and now feels like standard. I have organic clutch and hold power amazingly well! Will get some videos this week at some point to show milltek and revo at its best.

Below are pic of new vs old clutch and car on ramp having clutch and h&r springs fitted!

Thanks for the update :) Do you think that the clutch pedal has got softer, or did you just get used to it?

I had no idea that wheel alignment will need to be done afterwards. Thanks for the heads up!
