    Single flywheel conversions are known to put far too much stress through the gearbox and cause a lot of vibration.

    the benefits of the DMF is torsional vibration damping.if you fit a solid flywheel you will not only put lots of pressure on your gearbox but on your crankshaft as well. This goes especially for torquey powerful cars which the vectra cdti 150 is.
    This is what I found out when I needed to have mine done at 80K, so I stuck with the DMF and if it lasts me another 80K I'll be happy.

    A1 Clutches, check them out on the internet, they have 4 or 5 centers, just find the nearest to you and give them a call. cost me £650 all in just over a year ago.

    Thanks for your replys, think I'll stick with LUK dmf. It just gets a bit much £500 every 60-80k.

    That's what I had fitted LUK DMF and clutch kit supplied and fitted by A1 clutches. If you can get the same fitted for £500 or you can do it yourself then it's a bargain, go for it. Last year when I was looking to get mine done the lowest price I could have it done for was £1000, vauxhall wanted £1350.
