Default Sachs VR6 Clutch, Muffler and rear suspension upgrades

My B4 daily driver clutch (original OEM) died in Dec and it had to be towed to the shop. Two of the springs rusted and broke apart and jammed the clutch. While in the shop we discovered that the muffler had holes, hairline crack at weld etc. so ended up with major job. OEM and quality parts are getting harder to find. I want to give a public shoutout for the guys at idparts for friendly fast support and standing behind what they sell when it comes to missing bits and pieces, wrong parts etc.

The car is now drivable albeit with 4-lug front and 5-lug rear. Front suspension upgrade to 5-lug will be next later this Spring.

Replaced / upgraded Jan 2018:
1. Sachs VR6 Clutch Kit for B4 TDIs
2. Complete muffler from iDparts
3. Bilstein rear struts and springs
4. Rear 5-lug dust shields (powder coated)
5. Rear 5-lug VR6 OEM-size Zimmerman drilled discs / rotors
6. Rear stainless brake lines (set of four)
7. Rear Mk 4 aluminum calipers with B4 carriers (red powder coated)
8. BBS RX 226 wheels 5X100 ET35 7X16
9. Continental 205/55 R16
