Had mine now for about a year and a half now. Still on original clutch with no problems so far. Thought the massive boost in performance with the uprated intercooler would have finished it off, but no. Funny thing my nephew had a standard 16 plate S3 and mine was a lot quicker. He has just bought a BMW M4 and we had a rolling start race and I kept up with him all the way lol. Don't think he's too happy.
