Just look up exercises yourself, the majority of physical therapists are kooks. Strengthening your hips/glutes can really do wonders for your knee. Alleviated about 95% of my knee pain.

BT over health? Haha, I guess. I'm way too active, so I get priority over a car any day.

It can't be that minor if you brought up concern about using the clutch. Not trying to preach, but putting in the time now to fix it while you can is better than having regrets later.

And yeah, you can look up stuff on your own. My PT experiences have been pretty lame but doing my own research filled in the gaps and I got results. Just takes some time and work. Good luck.

Just looking over your thread. I believe nothing is really wrong with my flywheel as it is just a tad bit over 50k miles. (mostly highway miles).

It's just that I cannot shift gears when the car is on, but I can when the car is off. Searching didn't yield much answers except the I didn't know until now that we have crappy clutches and that i most likely broke the pressure plate.

I want to go the same route you did but like to know or how to Check if the flywheel needs to be replaced. Thanks!

You guys getting a core deposit back for sending back your stock GTI pressure plate and disc? Or are we eating that core charge?

I didn't bother. IIRC the core deposit I paid was about what shipping would cost so it wasn't worth it.

Well just placed all my orders. Looks like you guys snagged up the parts at a better price on almost everything. Still over $100 cheaper than the HS kit, though.

$886 for new pressure plate, clutch disc, dual-mass flywheel, throwout bearing and necessary hardware shipped to my door. Many, many thanks everyone for the info! Can't wait to not have a slipping clutch anymore and actually feel what my stage 2 tune actually feels like!

That's a great price for all those parts. Putting down Stage 2 power with no slipping is a great feeling.

I agree...great price when you include the DMFW. HS Tuning kit is really $400 more expensive when you add $300 for a new DMFW. Good luck with install

Just a quick heads up, the LuK throwout bearing - LSC320 is the plastic, two piece type. Will be returning it and spending the extra money on the revised metal, one-piece bearing.

How many of you have gone with the plastic Luk LSC320 2 piece throw out bearing? Anyone having any issues with? It seems even the Sachs throw out bearing is 2 piece but maybe has less plastic? Seems only the VW one is 1 piece and all metal.

The metal 1 piece is the updated version.
