I need a new clutch. Found this on Ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SACHS-02-04...sspagenameZWDVW

For my 02 996 C4 Cab.

The other issue is that no mechanic around here will do the work in less than 8 hours. From what i've heard, the job should be done in 4-5 hours.

One mechanic will let me bring in the kit myself, however he will charge me $10/hr additional. Regular rates $78/hr - so $88/hr with my kit.

The quote I have is $1250+tax ( if they source the kit ) for the clutch kit install and RMS replacement.

Feedback? Thanks -

Forgot to mention my local Porsche dealer quoted me $1500+tax ( no flyweel ) for the clutch and they ONLY will replace the RMS if they FIND any leakage at additional cost. 2 yrs unlimited mileage from the Porsche dealer. 6 months with the specialty shop.

The Ebay clutch that has a statement saying that the picture is the actual clutch you'll be buying doesn't look right. If you buy cheap on clutches, you'll be very sorry. Pay the extra and get the right genuine Porsche part and don't worry. Saving two hundred bucks on a part that is questionable and hard to change is not a good investment for your Porsche. Suncoast has them on special and is the real deal.

Make sure that your dealer would agree to use parts that you purchase from another dealer. I am having hard time getting Champion Porshce in Florida to change me leaking RMS and clutch with parts that I got from Sunset Porsche in Oregon. I guess making over $100/h is not enough for them and they want to make 100% mark-up on the parts as well.
