    F17 gearbox right? basically all you need to worry about is giving ecp the right reg. number... they can check it better in store (they can match it with your cars vin)
    FYI if you get either Luk or Sachs you''ll be fine both brands are good, but apparently Sachs has been designed that if it fails it won't break the bellhousing of the gearbox or the flywheel.. I recently had a failed clutch plate and the damage it can do goes from breaking the bellhousing to actually seizing the crankshaft... so stay away from cheap manufactured clutches... look in my car diary for a picture of a clutchplate failure. Note that both the flywheel and the pressure plate were fine, it was just the inferior metal that couldn't handle the torque because the friction material could easily last a few more years... that all said..

    either Luk or Sachs will do just fine
