    Default SACHS vs FTE

    Hi All,

    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with FTE clutch components?

    I ordered a Sachs concentric slave from ECP to go with my Sachs clutch and DMF, but they've given me FTE stating it's the same quality part but that FTE is just their second supplier when they have no Sachs stuff.

    I've paid £91 for the slave as I ordered Sachs (that was with the ECP discount codes, it was meant to be £140) and I'm just wondering should I be demanding what I've paid for or will FTE be OK? Can't find any prices for FTE slave online so I'm unsure.

    Don't know if I'm just being fussy.

    Cheers.

    FTE seems to be a Valeo brand apparently, Valeo have been around for ages so it should be fine as a standard replacement.

    I couldn't find anywhere listing the FTE for the VXR but putting in my 1.4 reg into ECP website FTE is listed for 2 pounds cheaper than sachs...this would seem to back up it being comparable quality (Sachs were 124, FTE were 123, Luk were 118 and transmech 39)

    At the end of the day if you're not happy just send it back

    Ah nice one cheers for that mate, that was my main concern that I'd been given a transmech price product for Sachs price, but if they're priced so close then should be all good
