I believe you are correct Suss, I'm at work right now too (I have that same PP saved on my home computer), but, I do remember Luk being mentioned as the clutch supplier. I'm familiar with that brand, since I replaced many a clutch/pressure plate combo on the myriad of older VW's I owned over the years. My local VW garage used to supply Luk parts, since they were half decent and not quite as pricy as the Bosch or Brembo units..... LOL. Even though they were marginally cheaper, I never had an issue with any of them and they seemed to hold up well against my abuse (we're talking late teens/early 20's while in university), even with the way I drove my old MKII GTi's and Scirocco's....
