Good deal on clutch?
 
I found this site on e-bay it looks like a really good deal for a new OEM clutch from Sachs. Its for the 3.2L boxster. I was thinking about picking one up from this place even though I don't need one yet. I'm thinking the dealership will charge you muh more than $330 dollars. Anyone have a ballpark figure on what the dealer charges for this part?

My shop wants $1,000 to swap out a clutch. does anyone know what it feels like when the clutch is going on one of these cars?

Is that 1k for the parts and labor...or just labor?

This price looks about right to me. I bought one for my 2.5 three months ago and it was nearly 300.00.

I'd find a reputable independent shop versus taking to the dealer though... unless you have skads of cash to throw away. I'm finding that the dealerships look up the hourly rate in their book and charge you that price, even if the mechanic can and does do the job in half the time every single time. It's a total rip off.
