...I got the impression the Valeo was smoother and had less noise/vibration....I haven't heard that the Valeo is any stiffer than the stock clutch, will see.
Seems you've done your research and made the right decision.I went for a test drive tonight. It runs great! The clutch pedal seems lighter that I remember. It seems to engage in the same place it used to. It all seemed very familiar, yet lighter and smoother than before. I... Also I get absolutely no chatter with clutch in or out in neutral.
Hey, I missed this post for some reason just noticed it now, sorry. Yes I still think that the new VW Golf TDI is over priced and over optioned and there should be a Mk6 base model with 15inch steel wheels and roll up windows for under $16. That is exactly why we bought the new Kia, allthough my wife ended up spending $4000 extra on power everything and 16" alloy wheels, which I am still not happy about. There is even a option for no air conditioning on the base Kia - that would have been really economical.Hey Narf, saw your "why I won't buy a diesel again" post. I wouldn't compare it to a City Golf, but Comfortline Golf to Comfortline Golf, in 2011 it was $2400 difference for the TDI engine plus 6 speed transmission option vs 2.5L 5 speed. I guess those that bought TDIs generally want to the higher trimlines so VW doesn't offer the TDI in a trendline anymore (Trendline Golf 2.5L 5 speed is $3800 cheaper than Comfortline TDI 6MT). Did you ever consider getting a City Golf and doing a TDI transplant into it? You probably have the skills... I always wondered about doing that...
