    best place to get a clutch apart from main dealer?

    is it best to go main dealers for new clutch or is there a decent clutch out there for astra z20let for a better price or do you get what you pay for and go genuine?its only running at guess 240 if that so standard clutch will do as not going for big bhp.

    i have just gone through a load of crap with euro car parts clutches, the garage fitted an Luk clutch first and that slipped as soon as i put my foot down, then they fitted another clutch from euro's and that done the same in the end i bought a courtenay fast road clutch for about £200.00 delivered and that is perfect. if you do go for a euro car parts clutch make sure it's for the turbo as i'm convinced that they kept on fitting the N/A clutch but can't be sure.

    surley a 2nd hand clutch thats done 600ish miles should be fine then as its basically new and my car is only running no higher than 240.the bloke thats selling says he is running 300bhp so no good for him.
