luk or Sachs?

so i changing the dual mass fly wheel and clutch on my 56 1.8 tdci focus myself.

at the moment iv sourced a LUK dual mass fly wheel and clutch kit from local auto parts trader for 450. However on ebay i have found a Sachs kit for 375. Does anyone have any advice or opinion on what i should go for?

Thanks

I want to say that Sachs makes the factory part for Ford, but wait and see if someone verifies that.

Not sure how it is on the Focus but Sach and Luk have both supplied OEM clutchs to Ford in the case of the Contour.

Just an fyi about clutches off Ebay, it seems that in the case of the SVT Contour that the Luk kit found on Ebay is not the same as the OEM Luk clutch.
