Thank you for the info!No problem, this is the kit I bought:
And the throwout bearing:HTML:
Prices on the website include the 19% VAT tax, but when you put in your shipping address they take that off automatically. I believe the picture of the above TOB is the two-piece version, but I received the aluminum 1-piece(perhaps they updated the part, but not the picture?).HTML:
I read that kit # 001422-999502 is for Sachs DMFW only, and that there is a different part # for Luk DMFW. When I ordered I asked them to verify that I had the correct parts for my vehicle('09 MkV TSI) and that I planned on using a Sachs DMFW.
I used the Sachs DMF91158 flywheel, if you shop around you can find it for around $450. I had some difficulty finding the Sachs part #, but it's listed as compatible for my '09 MkV TSI.
I've only put 5 miles on everything thus far and am really happy with it. If I run into any problems I'll report back.
If installing yourself, there are a couple of tools you may want to make things easier. I like taking the money saved on doing the labor myself, buy the right tools and make sure its done the right way.
Flywheel holding tool:
Clutch alignment tool:HTML:
Part # T10097, both HSTuning and ECS tuning make their own version which is the same thing.
I found that detailed parts diagrams were hard to find. Here's a link I have saved to the trans fasteners diagram, you can find the other diagrams from the link:
I didn't have a Bentley manual, but I found a PDF with all the torque specs from the A3, which shares a lot parts with the GTI:HTML:

There is now an aftermarket spring seal that appears to be way better than the flimsy oem one:HTML:
For the rear main, they recommend Reinzosil, there are a couple different versions with different temp ratings(200 C or 300 C). I opted for Reinzosil #00004320435 with the higher temp rating.HTML:
Also, for loctite, there are different versions of blue. I opted for Loctite Blue #243 which has some resistance to oil when curing compared to the normal Blue.
Anyways, more info than you asked for. Hopefully others find it useful.
EDIT: In my clutch kit, I received a non self-adjusting pressure plate. I was actually relieved as I didn't have to worry about resetting it myself. However, the engagement or bite point is a bit higher than stock, I just added a clutch bump stop to avoid bending the pressure plate fingers more than necessary when disengaged.
