    Hi all..

    Well my clutch is slipping quite badly when changing gear quite quickly, It doesnt slip in 5th gear and 30mph so still has life left, but its quite annoying and needs to be changed sooner rather than later...

    Ive searched eBay for clutches, and looked at topics on the forum suggesting single mass lightened ones...

    Im not very clued up on clutches, and wondered if anyone had any advice on tips for which to buy and where from? And maybe give some possibe comparisiants...

    I have the m44 1.9 engine in my car.

    Many thanks
    Chris

    Hiya,

    Unless you're after silly type tuned power i'd go with LUK

    If you search for them you'll be surprised who the mother company is

    Never had problems with luk clutches, or any oem type clutches with standard and upto 25%-40% uprated power

    I either get my luks trade from local suppliers or the bay, like anything off there check feedback etc

    Last luk i got off the bay for a cally turbo, i just searched and went with cheapest lol

    TT
