You work FOR the dealer and cant catch a deal?

Man you need to move away from the sales side and jump into the engineering/design side. Or hell, even the administrative side would suffice.

The dual mass flywheel is two pieces. The friction surface rotates over the larger outer piece with the weights, and is dampened by springs. This absorbs engine vibrations, and isolates them from the transmission, which is why alot of single mass clutch setups make rattling noises. This also gives the clutch that vague feel, because it adds spring into the driveline. It's basically a comfort thing, not a performance thing obviously.

Southbend now has a single mass setup that is supposed to not make the rattly noises, so check into that

Thanks Cryptic... thats exactly what I'm leaning towards. I just got a quote from a local shop. Gonna have to wait until after Christmas as it's not cheap.

My opinion is that it's morally wrong to try and get your stock clutch replaced under warranty when you are fully aware that it is slipping because you got your ECU tuned.

On top of that the new stock clutch is just going to wear out early again anyway. You are wasting other people's time and money by being selfish and inconsiderate.

Be a man and buy a proper clutch when you toast the stock one due to modifying your car. This is exactly why dealerships give a hard time to people who have modified their cars.....you are giving us all a bad name.
