How's the clutch doing now? I'm looking at options as my CM FX350 just shit the bed after a year.

It's slipping on WOT in 3rd-6th gear. Stock, 91 and 93 octane settings. Not too happy about it either

I've got about 4k on mine now and it's holding up great. Absolutely no complaints.

Bringing this thread back from the dead. Does anyone know if there is a US distributor for these yet? I think Kerma TDI might have had them at one point (I have no idea if the GTI/GLI has the same trans as the TDI) but they appear to be out of stock. http://www.kermatdi.com/sachs-sre-cl...-speed-manual/

Yeah, they're a tiny big more expensive and it doesn't say that it includes a TOB. Honestly with the Euro/dollar exchange rate being more favorable now it may just end up being cheaper to ship overseas.

I thought it was expensive when the Canadian dollar was at par!

Get in touch with the owner and ask if it comes with TOB. He's pretty prompt.

Good luck and keep us updated on where you end up sourcing parts from!

I just got the stage 2 kit a couple of weeks ago from Emmanuele. It didn't come with the TOB but I asked about it and they sent me a link for everything, including the TOB and flywheel bolts. The clutch was shipped directly to me from Germany and arrived much faster than I would have expected. The TOB and bolts came from Emmanuele a couple of days later from California.

One thing to note, Emmanuele sent the 2 piece TOB so I went to a local dealer and picked up the cast one to have installed. Unfortunately (and partially my fault), I left both in the car at the installer and even though I had all the correct parts together in the rear hatch and showed them before the install, they grabbed the 2 piece TOB sitting up front that I was planning to return and installed that instead.

Emmanuele and the shop both said they haven't seen issues with the 2 piece TOB so hopefully mine holds up for as long as I have the car or decide to have a LSD installed, but it might be worth the effort to purchase the one-piece TOB separately. Overall, I am very happy with Emmanuele and would happily buy from them again. I can't blame them for the TOB mix up.

I e-mailed sachs directly this week to get a quote, they gave me an even better price than what's listed on their website. E-mail them, see what they can get you. My case was $200 cheaper than Emmanuel (in CAD) for the Stage 1 kit... FYI they also ship UPS Worldwide, which means no brokerage fees etc. you may have to pay some small fee when you get it ($20 or something).

Interesting. I've had the opposite luck with UPS. Always got dinged hard on duties when buying from US. I always request shipping via USPS and pay $0 on duties.

Link is just a few posts up. This would be my choice with their SMF setup.
