Hi all!

My clutch in my '99 IS200 sport is starting to slip and I was wondering what are my options?

What are the prices like on an uprated cluth as opposed to OEM?

Money as ever is tight so I'm looking for the cheapest option really!

Thanks

Just had a quote from woodford................

£450 inc discount!!!!!!!!!  :crying:  :crybaby:

Is that fitted or just the part?

Thats fitted. Parts are about £185. But the last clutch I fitted was on a MK2 escort and I'd bet that the Lexus will be a tad hader than that!!!!

Clutch is a good price. Don't see the point in paying so much more for a Helix one.

Fitting will be expensive at a Lexus dealer due to their labour rates. You could always buy the clutch and get an independant to fit it. They should only charge about £100-150.

well just driven about 30 miles on my new helix clutch and all i can say is its GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Light, responsive and quiet! power transmission is excellent and it couldnt be more silky smooth if you covered it in butter an cream!

Cheers dave, its soo much better than that paddle clutch.

Also seemed that the basket wasnt secured correctly as a few of the retaining bolts were about to fall out or something!! so was just in time too!

couldnt reccoment this clutch enough! :)

think dave has been running 280 bhp for a while

and is now looking at 300 + bhp

and with launch control !!

What is launch control??? Does it mean traction can be off and a medium found between endless swheel spinning and max acceleration through first gear???

launch control enables you to floor tghe throtle & the engine stays at say 4500 rpm you then drop the clutch and hang on :winky:

setting mine up burnt my old clutch out :sick:

used it twice in anger and its pretty impresive.

not recommended for daily use :driving:
