SACHS SRE Performance clutch

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.

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

The OE DMF took out a clutch disc on my car... bushing in the center worn out and the clutch hung and dragged on the disc. Happened twice...warrantied once.

Been looking into that one too. It's $1k without a flywheel. I'd need to pick up a Golf R DMF to go with it. The kit is basically an OE TT-RS pressure plate and some version of OE clutch disc. They modify the parts to mount on the mk5 Gti and Mk6 Gti/R.

What were the symptoms? I have a weird clatter with my Southbend Stage 3 clutch disc/ stock DMF setup, at idle in neutral, and it feels like something in the drivetrain drags intermittently as I'm coming to a stop. I'm wondering if my clutch disc might be shitting the bed. Still feels perfectly grabby and holds nicely under throttle.
