    R u getting the dual Mass Flywheel changed as well? and is that included in the £750?
    No point in just changing the clutch on its own as the DMF will go at some point in the near future

    Yes thats 3 part clutch kit and flywheel
    Not that far really as i do 150 - 200 miles a day so just down the road.
    Can get LUK clutch kit and Sachs flywheel from euro carparts this month for £441.50 free delivery but very hard to find a garage to do it not supplying there own parts. My normal garage that were quoting £750 saying now can't do it for 1 month as he is on his own and his other monkey of for personal reasons.
    A1 clutchs only £650 all in 3 part clutch and flywheel,

    Interesting as I would like a Sachs Flywheel to go with the uprated Sach Clutch. It seems Eurocarparts are used as a distributor rather than a wholesaler for certain companies such as Luk and sachs.
    I ordered some Bilsteins on Ebay due to them being cheaper and also out of stock on the Europarts www yet they were delivered from the Europarts warehouse. So they direct deliver (DD) as well, seems to be some big margins in car parts to be made...........
