When the time comes, I'll just search online for the cheapest OEM one I can find. I may get the Sach's ToB or OEM or RockAuto... Haven't decided.

Sachs and RSR are very similar kits all based on the TTRS pressure plate (which is the weak part). Sachs I think conservatively rates theirs.

For part numbers, check out the TTRS thread. I think the first post has them all. If you don't want to upgrade the RMS, you can add the 2 extra bolts on the stock one which VW decided was not needed. There is an old thread with the measurements of the bolts, but I'd have to search for it.
No way I'm going to do a clutch without replacing the RMS especially since it's under $200. Lots of info here.

0bLiViOuS what are you running on your car? Are you tuned? If so, with what?

I'm FBO with JB4. Soon to be IS38 by the end of February (waiting on turbo to arrive and find time)! That's right, I'm the crazy one going IS38 on the stock clutch

LMAO, I forgot you're the guy who drives like a Grandma. That's ok, I do as well. Back roads are my thing as are on ramps and Clover Leaf off ramps.

I've got a PP but haven't done it. I think RadFox has a video on YouTube of it. If you've done a clutch before, IMO it's not much different, but it's time consuming and frustrating at times lol
