My girlfriend has a cabrio and she needs a new clutch. My mechanic is suggesting a clutch kit, saying its is better than the stock clutch. Is this true? What are the differences if any? Im a little synical and thinking its cheaper and he just wants to make more on the part...???

Re: question about new clutch (marcanth)

Just get a stock clutch "kit", he prolly just said kit meaning to replace everything (pressure plate, flywheel, throw our bearing, clutch) instead of just the clutch...and i would go with that..stock of course

Re: question about new clutch (marcanth)

I have a clutchnet clutch for a VR. With a Sachs pressure plate designed by Schimmel Performance. Has about 500 miles on it. Just broken in and ready to beat on. So better than new. Good for 350 horse, doesn't change the pedal pressure, easy to drive, but 35% more clamping than stock. Going with a twin disc now, so kinda wasted my money. $300.
