    got mine done almost as quick and did it myself its not hard at all if you have a lift. doing transmissions on the ground is hard work.

    i had an POS Elantra one time that i put in 3 tranny on the floor none of them really worked and the last one that i put in hit hard as a mother f. ended up play demolition derby with a friend.

    shop should ask maybe around $550 like u said to put it on and about $3** for a stage 1 clutch with lighten flywheel

    Did yours take 3 hours? From the time the tranny was off, all shattered clutch material was removed, and the new clutch was on, tranny back on and it got picked up (in your case not picked up, but you get the point)

    I can change the clutch in my rx7, without a lift, in about an hour and a half, tops...

    Reason I didn't change the clutch in the GTi was that I had no lift, no 2 ton jack, nothing... Now adays I have everything... Minus the lift, I'll have that when I open my business

    no i did not do it in 3 hours it was more like 6 hours. being the first time i ever touched a vw to do some work on it i wanted to take my time n make sure everything was fine. plus the guys in the dealership would have done there fair share of clutch changes since the start of the mkiv.

    when do you plan to get your business? i want to do the same. wanted to buy my father in-laws shop a few months ago but im still in school n dont got time to start a business.

    within a few years, pretty much once I graduate, tho I don't need the business education... But it never hurts...

    The 3 hour swap is exactly why I paid the dealer to do it
