So my clutch went out Saturday night, and as I feared it appears to be the slave cylinder (weeping from the bell housing). As the slave is internal (is my understanding) my assumption is addressing the clutch as well makes sense and is in line with what my shop is recommending (particularly considering the car has 75k miles and I don't have records of the clutch being done by the previous owner).
My questions are:
What is the general recommendation with regard to clutch replacement? Just clutch? Clutch/bearing/flywheel? etc.
Is kevlar worth the premium with just bolt ons (Exhaust, reid intakes, tune) and no plans for more power?
Any recommended sources for clutch replacement parts (OEM new)? I love my indy shop, but they tend to charge sticker for parts, which is fine on little stuff, but I will likely try and source these parts myself as I suspect finding them cheaper than Audi sticker price shouldn't be too difficult.
Vendors are welcome to PM me pricing.
Thanks in advance!
