I'm looking to buy a Southbend Stage 4 OFE SS
anybody know where to buy one for cheaper than buying straight from Southbend?

Also would it be fine to just stick to the stock dual mass flywheel, I'd rather avoid the tranny chatter that people talk about. I mean I understand that it's probably easier to do both the flywheel and clutch at the same time since they're both right there, but I don't have the money for both

pleaseee help [:|]

your not gunna find a much better deal.. The flywheel is up to you, 11lb lwfw and no complaints here.. Almost positive Southbend re-surfaces your dmfw for free when you buy there clutch.

Funny thing is that someone else just had a GB on Southbend clutch kits.

I just installed a Southbend stage 4 clutch with 11lb unorthodox racing lwfw. I have absolutely no chatter noise that some people talk about when running a lwfw. My car revs up alot quicker since I got rid of that heavy ass stock flywheel.

I was recently looking for the same clutch kit and I came across these guys. I found these guys to be the absolute cheapest especially with their 15% sale.

I looked at the GB thread and they can not offer a group buy for them bc of conflict amongst SB dealers. I would PM Mike Hood aka mike-2ptzero. He responded in this thread couple posts above.

I was one of the first South Bend dealers on the forums, and was the king of GB's back in the days.

But as the popularity of their clutches grew amongst the Audi community, and new dealers popping up every day and whoring prices on the same clutch just to make a sale (while others call and complain to "cry wolf"), South Bend no longer allows any of its dealers to host Group Buys, and we must all (or at least try to) adhere to selling the clutch at list price. Some reputable dealers (like myself and DTH) will offer free shipping...while others will offer combo deals. Go with a dealer you feel more comfortable with--after all they all sell great clutches...all within a few dollars difference in price at the end of the day.

I figure my best bet is to buy it directly from them since there only 45 min from me!
