Time for a new clutch

2003 S 144k miles daily driver, clutch slipping at higher loads. Looks like it's time for a new clutch and flywheel. Anyone have words of wisdom on which clutch and flywheel arrangement to choose? How about any "as long as you have it apart" advice?

Replace the IMS bearing and rear main oil seal (RMS) while you are in there!

Check out the German made LUK clutch and DM Flywheel. I found the LUK had a 9" disc where the Sach's only had a 8 1/2" disc. That's assembly was for the Wife's 05 TDI Beetle. I know Sach's clutches are in the Boxsters. I might also mention the clutch fingers are a little longer which makes the pedal softer. The Sach's are shorter which makes for a little stiffer pedal. I plan on using the LUK when needed. Both less than 350 from a company in NC.
