HELP Clutch problem again

Hey guys
When i drive on highways or big road that i dont have to press the clutch pedal multiple times i dont have any problem.But when i drive inside the center of city,after 15 minutes the car is revving but its going slow,like i am still pressing the clutch pedal.If i leave city and go to high way everything is fine.
But this problem make me worry and thinking before i go to the center of city.
I am not sure if i need to change the clutch or the slave cylinder as i did in summer.The clutch i currently have,has been fitted the summer of 2013 and has 15.000km
Also what diameter does the clutch of 2.0TS have?is the same as 1.6?
Help me mates!!!!

The first Alfa i fall in love was my dad's Spider Duck tail when i was 3 years old.
MY 147 2.0
Garrett 2867,380cc Injectors,Aeromotive fuel pump,76mm custom exhuast,FMC,6paddle clutch,Hks boost gauge,Koni STR.T,Eibach Sportline,GTA ARB,Ultra Racing strut brace,Brembo 288mm drilled

Best 147 in Crete

Once Alfisti,Always Alfisti

Hi,well normaly wot I found with cars is that when clutch is on way to extange,I do first test
.....car on idle hand brake ,second gear and relise clutch slowly to the end normaly when cluch is good engine will stall,if still idle cluch is no good... Second test....when at speed pop fourth gear and accelerate pedal to flor look on dials speed need follow revmeter if revs go faster then speed clutch gone need swop new But Alfas have hydraulics check for leaking system air traps,pain is that main cylinder is in side gearbox,Olso check for broken spring on clutch pedal,might be easy fix good luck.

Valeo & Luk i have recently been told are the same company, so use either. Valeo are OEM fitment i understand.

I have last week bought a Luk kit for a 2.0 TS for less than 60 delivered to my door.

In Greece,a 1.6 valeo kit costs 110€ and a 2.0 valeo clutch kit costs 190€!
Thats why i am asking if they use same clutches!
