    Hi Guys
    I have a 2010 GTI 6speed manual, I bought it with 25k miles on it and around 31k it started shuddering when I took it to the dealer they said the clutch was pretty bad and it was destroyed and they put in a new clutch( i dont know how the clutch was destroyed after just 31K)
    now i have 40k miles on it and the car is staring to shudder the same way it did earlier and I feel its the same issue so I have couple of questions
    1. can there be anything else wrong with my car to destroy the clutch
    2. what is the lifetime of a clutch

    I have a 2011, manual with 80 k miles I just bought. When I accelerate, usually when its cold, I get a slight clunk when letting out the clutch. Anyone else had this? Does it mean the clutch is going?

    I, too, did not like the wheels at all. As it turned out, the tires sucked as well. Two of the factory Pirellis developed large sidewall blisters on the hub side (I was luck to spot them before they wreaked havoc1!). This was with 15K on the car and lots of remaining tread on the tires. I took advantage of the 'opportunity' to scrap the wheels and buy an entirely new setup from TireRack...delivered mounted and balanced:
    Enkei Fujins (17")
    Continental ExtremeContact DWS

    This reduced the unsprung weight by 20lbs PER CORNER! The handling and ride of the car improved enormously.
    and...bonus points...I sold the Detroit wheels for $1000 to an Audi A4 owner looking to pimp out his ride. (btw, I grew up in Detroit)

    After another 30K miles I replace the Contis with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Even more awesome
