    Courtenay can sell you the uprated clutch and pressure plate for around 660£:

    total rip off vs a clutch specialist... i was quoted around £250 to £350 depending on the material spec i wanted.
    Find a local company that makes clutches on site rather than just bought in and marked up.

    Damn... that is quite a difference! Don’t know what VX is charging for a standard clutch but given how they usually rip people off, sachs probably based their price off that.

    VX its about £1400 fitted or around £1000 if I supply the clutch so looks like £400 for the VX kit.... neither includes a slave cylinder and it would be madness not to fit a new one... £100 or so for the sachs updated slave

    these guys dont list a clutch but may be worth a phone call

    Looks like around 400£ for a dual plate heavy duty clutch pack for the F40 tranny

    I wouldn't get the clutch done until it starts slipping, the smell is normal. I used to get it with my old clutch with my car being mapped. Smelled something terrible when I floored it (a sulphurous burning matches smell), which I don't do very often, it could just be burning off dust. I replaced mine with the uprated Sachs Performane clutch when I had to change the flywheel, bought both of these from Courtenay as they were the cheapest out of eveyone, also changed the slave cylinder for the uprated one from Sachs. When the old clutch came out it was fine, could have went for quite a few more miles, the new clutch was absolutely stinking when I floored it for the first 100 miles or so, so the smell just means it's burning not knackered. To get the clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, lowering springs fitted and a service done, I was £936 if I remember correctly, from a VX dealer.

    might depend on the face of the dmf ...some places can reface it if not overly wore....either way its going to hurt financially unless your able to strip it down yourself.
    labour alone is about £500 from an independent...budget for overall £1k.... luckily i'm going to be doing my own and getting a custom clutch plate kit made using the existing parts assuming the specialist can reuse them...if not they can build a kit from scratch for less than any SACHS etc kit
    OEM kits are cheap enough but just don't last
