Awesome, I just ordered one from rock auto, should be here in a few days. I read LUK is a German company, and makes good clutches.

I've talked to shops that want to install and warranty their own parts. A clutch really is just a clutch I think unless you're going for performance - I've seen the way more expensive Exedy Stage2/3.

About $700 and hopefully I'll have a brand new clutch (should feel better than before I bought the car a year and half ago) by next week. Not bad and I guess not worth selling or junking the car.
