  2. 3.0 Spider Clutch and Flywheel - Standard or Solid Flywheel?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've been quoted £532 INC Vat for a standard clutch (release b, pressure plate and disc) which seems very fair. What do people think, go for a solid flywheel upgrade? Dual Mass is something like 14KG and a solid one about 8.5 I've read. Then there is the Q2/Quaife diff option too.... Dual...

  6. Swapping a DMF for solid flywheel/clutch kit?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

    Just hours after the following pic... The dual mass flywheel (DMF) on my 1.9JTD ('03 156 Sportwagon) spat the dummy. Clutch seems okay (bite no slip) and had been replaced 20k Miles earlier (DMF was pronounced okay at that time). I'll replace it all for peace of mind :) This isn't a question...
