It seems Sachs has an uprated "performance" clutch kit designed to be used with the EO DMF. I really like that it is made by the same company that makes the OEM clutch. They rate it for 550nm (405ftlbs). It's about 500 Euros direct from Sachs (605 minus 19% VAT), so $690 + shipping. This has quickly moved to the top of my list of options but I haven;t found a lot of reviews/experience - a bit on Vortex. Anyone familiar with it?

If your math is right, the price has come down since I first saw it. I think clutchmasters is a good option, they do make them for the stock DMF. It's just that most people get the SMF too, and that's where the extra noise comes from.

My math on the SRE? I just plugged it into google to convert. We don't pay the VAT but there will be shipping. That is just the disc and pressure plate - no flywheel.

Just got a quote from a shop in the UK. $369 for a LUK flywheel (DM), $369 for the SRE oressure plate (LUK), $320 for the Sachs organic clutch disc, $65 fir the slave cylinder and bearing, $130 shipping.

I've got a message in to see what it would cost to source the DMF locally but I think that price is pretty good.

Correct. There will also be ~$25 customs tax. Still, I like this OEM+ option better than the after market kits. The only thing similar is the HS Tuning RSR but it is $1k without a flywheel.

I picked up a DMF with 13k from a 2012 GTI. It's on the shelf if anyone is looking for one.

so cm fx350 for $1200 or this for $1500... plus shipping. the dmf has its problems too. id rather cut one less thing to go wrong and get rid of the dmf tbh

i like options but imo, this is an expensive option
