    looking to replace my clutch as it has started to slip ,car is stage 2 only and is well looked after and not abused hardly but when I did do a bit of spirited driving today it needs replaced .What options is available to me on what to get as I'm not upto speed on this sort of thing .Would you recommend AP or something else and is there any other model using the same clutch set up.car is 2012 with only 44k miles .Not impressed tbh.

    You're asking the standard clutch to carry an extra 100-150lb/ft of torque, they're simply not designed to be carrying that kind of power so going to wear out a lot quicker

    I've just had the Sachs performance clutch fitted at the end of December. Drives just like the standard setup. I'm still on standard map at the moment but I'm in for stage 1 tune on the 27th of this month so I'll see how it goes

    How much was it all in if you don't mind me asking? Will be looking into it myself in the near future.

    I supplied all the parts as. Around about £1400 fitted. That's with a new Dmf as well and all gaskets plus new rear crank oil seal, clutch fork etc.
