driving along the motorway today , i noticed my clutch starting to slip at high revs . so this is a post to see what type everyone recommends . I would also like to know how much this should cost from a main dealer or other garage. ive looked at older threads on this but i would like some new info. do you also recommend changing gear box oil or anything else at this stage?? thanks

Depends on yr personal preferences.
Do u want a clutch that provides the same driving characteristics as the factory unit but with higher torque capacity , if yes then avoid metallic , paddle or puck clutches and go 4 a full face carbon/organic , sprung centre clutch.

If u can handle less user friendly clutches , that is more difficult in traffic , reversing and know how 2 avoid overloading the drive train with full on starts , then u can go 4 non-sprung centre twin plate or paddle units. These will handle almost all the abuse u cud throw at them.

Negri,

Go 4 the AP organic unit , £350'ish |PLS| fitting.
Check the flywheel carefully 4 cracks or scoring b4 fitting the new clutch.

Negri,
The flywheel needs replacement if it is cracked or scored , just have yr garage check it carefully.
All trans oils (gearbox , transfer case , rear diff) shud b changed at 12k miles on normal road use or 6k miles if used on lots of track days , ie more than 1 per month.

The AP organic clutch is just fantastic, i've just fitted one along with
a JUN superlight flywheel and the differece is *VERY* impressive;
I can sell both of these parts at a fat discount, so mail me if I can help.

May as well change the gearbox oil whilst your at it;
a **** hot mechanic can do the lot in less than 4 hours,
do check first, as some garages will try and charge you a days labour to
fit a clutch/flywheel !
