    Most people on here seem to go for sachs if uprating.
    If your not going any further than stage 1, a standard clutch will be fine by all accounts.

    I got mine from JBS as part of a group buy on SeatCupra.net.

    Note the organic is a lot more expensive than a regular Sachs replacement item. However it is rated to 330 lb/ft (from memory) whereas the standard is something like 300lb/ft, so worth it if you've been remaped and have a 'torquey' car.

    Yeah, the one on the ECP website is just the 'regular' Sachs replacement, as I say, I think the torque limit is 300 lb/ft. Was on the APS site earlier and they are quoting £449 plus vat for the Organic, which from memory is about what I paid before the group buy discount.

    I guess you need to decide how clsoe your torque output is to the normal Sachs limit and if you want to take the risk of it going again or not. I knew I was keeping my S3 so worth the investment 3 years ago. THe cost of the fittting is the same, so it is the extra £300 or so for the clutch in the first place.

    Just found the invoice:
    Sachs clutch cover + Sachs Organic clutch plate - £540, release bearing £37.33

    Couldn't tell you how many hours labour as I had a fair bit of other work done too! Wasn't a cheap week!

    I beg to differ.........
    Valeo clutch's are spot on and so are Borg & Beck.

    But having said that Sach's clutch's are too. All top brands. But i sell tones of Valeo's and never have a problem with them.

    that is expensive but woth every penny.
    i am looking to sell next year as i really want a 2001 onwards s3 in black or red so its not worth my while upgrading the clutch in this car so ill probably replace with one of those 1s
