Clutch slip

Hi
My clutch has started to slip I have suspected this for a while. Its now time to get it sorted.
Any advice and what the big bill is going to be would be great

depends theres afew options,

1 go for same clutch 395 + vat

2 go forperformance clutch 495 +vat

3 go for paddle clutch 595 +vat

4 go for mad hks twin plate clutch 1350 + vat

option 4 may sound mad, but, if if goes again all you need to do is change the plates, not the whole thing which costs about £70, so if you go through 3 clutch's its saved you money in the long run


hope that helps, by the way thats prices from scoobyclinic

I went option 4 paid 900 fitted at SC such nice lads at the clinic... Does make some noise for the first week or two..and is a bit on/off if you know what I mean...
Most cars up to 330 ish bhp the Performance organic clutch is best bet.
