Still crying over my clutch. Does this cost sound crazy?

How's that possible? That would imply that they use the same fluid which they don't
They use the same reservoir but not technically the same fluid because the circuits are separate. You can replace the clutch bleeder and only need to bleed the clutch. You can also replace the brake lines and only need to bleed the brakes. Same reservoir and same fluid being added but they don't communicate with one another.

So where did all that brake fluid go when I did my bleader block and swirl valve mods? It is the same reservoir. Uses the same fluid. It's amazing that with all this technology and information at ones finger tips people can not spend 30 seconds on Google to validate anything......

LOL the VW dealer quoted me $1300 in labor. Had a VW Indy shop do it for half that tho. Good luck

so what is the consensus here, 6-900 is price for clutch install?
For a GTI I'd say $600-800
For the R $750-900
This is for labor alone that I'm referring to.

Some shops may change a bit more. My estimates are averages. That said... If a shop is charging what the dealership would charge (double what my estimate is) it's way too much.

My final labor bill will be $950. Had been quoted ~$1500 by another outfit.

Yikes, is there that much more work involved with the R? I paid $500 CAD (~$380 USD) for labor for my GTI by an indy.

Honestly, remembering the issues dudes were having with their mechatronics on the mkv forum was a factor in me getting my mt car.
But the Mk V was a long time ago. The DSG, invented by Porsche back in the 80s, can be considered a fairly mature product at this point. In contrast, it’s pretty hard to understand why VW didn’t fit the 6MT R with a decently robust conventional clutch.

A few of my friends dated various levels of crazy chicks that were into horses. I know there are probably some sane ones, but I'm not finna find out.

I paid $500 for clutch install here in DFW. The installer had it done in 3 hours, he has a lot of experience installing them however.
