    Default Dual Mass Flywheel

    Right guys- I know your all sick to death of reading about this but......

    was going to book my car in at maltings transmissions(bailiff bridge) next week
    where I was quoted £677 for dmf and complete clutch fitted ....I thought, but when I spoke to someone there and he asked what car it is(150 sri) was annoyed and perturbed(spelling) at the fact that in his words"the only sri vauxhall make is the 2.0 petrol"........so after a brief argument I put the phone down and thought NO....I can't trust these people with my pride and joy

    So started to search and ring round, came across a company called C&G motorsport who make performance clutches to order! rang them this morning and spoke to a very knowledgeable guy called Mick,

    Backtracking slightly a couple of weeks ago a member on here said you can get a conversion kit for the CDTI.....I said this member was wrong- nobody does them........I appologise as he was correct.

    They however did not recommend it to me as gearboxes have been failing after time due to the torque, he did however give me some options.

    1 - dual mass + uprated 5 paddle clutch kit fitted £780
    or
    2 - conversion kit + clutch £650
    or
    3-dual mass and standard clutch fitted £590

    apparently these use LUK clutches-remove friction material,replace with ceramic or kevlar and uprate plate.......at mo can't decide to uprate or standard........you guys any thoughts
    thanks Andy

    I would uprate to the 5 paddle clutch kit as imo the standard clutches are poor.

    btw what is the 5 paddle clutch kit. Sounds like one that would be fitted to some sort of DSG/Semi auto multi clutch gearbox.

    apparently it has Five friction areas thus giving better grip....(I think)

    Whats wrong with the standard clutches? I have never had one even slip, thats including towing across France with a re-mapped 1.9 150 Vectra.

    In my opinion there is nothing wrong with the clutches.

    Be very carefull with a paddle clutch, they are alot more aggressive with the bite of the clutch. You may get fed up with it after a while.
