r88per Posted March 3, 2004 Report Share Posted March 3, 2004 The clutch / flyhweel on my S3 has been a bit suspect for a while know. No slippage just an annoying vibration feel through the pedal when taking up bite and a very short travel, with a snappy feel to it. I've done the dealer thing and they say theres nothing wrong. But I've drove 2 other S3's now and somethings definately not right. The clutch felt smooth with no snappiness. Anyway I'm going to change it in a few weeks and this is where the question arises. Do I go for option 1 which is to replace the clutch and dual mass flywheel with geniune Audi parts. I can get these for around £587 (trade) Or Option 2 which is to fit a lightened flywheel and uprated clutch. Ive seen this ECS Tuning with which the current exchange rate comes in at £733. The car is chipped by MTM so there is the issue of a standard clutch going again in the future. But I dont want a sharp visceous clutch with the amount of town driving I do. Also surely Audi made the flywheel a dual mass one for a reason, can anyone forsee engine problems by removing this for a solid Aluminium one? What do you guys think becasue as you can tell I havnt a clue which way to go. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
