late to the party, I guess.... just got my 2011 GTI APR 1 tuned. It slipped BAD in 5/6 gear, so they reduced it to the 91-gas low-torque tune. The car is otherwise stock, and honestly I'll probably sell it in the near future (1 year), but is there a consensus on the cheapest clutch sufficient for APR 1?

BTW - be happy that you all are doing it in the states... prices are absurd here in Germany.

Thought I would update quick. Fours years and 40K miles on my Clutchmasters FX-350 with SMFW at Stage 2 without a problem. I'm at 91K now.

The grab point on the clutch is perhaps a tad higher, possibly indicating it might be reaching end of life.

Just went K04 low-output file (I have the weak valve springs for now) and it still holds no issue.

Just an update, CM FX250 failed after two years of daily driving with lite spirited driving here and there. Unitronic Stage 1+ tune....

I think I'm going to go with the FX350....

Is there a preferred website/source to buy from? Any deals?

$1,250 seems awfully expensive for a clutch kit.

edit: scratch that... probably going with the SB S3 drop-in. The car has 80k miles... no need for overkill at this point.
