    Clutch Kit only $92 TODAY ONLY

    Use promo code for 20% off today only PICKDADSGIFT

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/173203689413

    Only 8 of them left.

    Highly recommend you guys to buy it at this crazy low price and just keep it in storage. Dealer charges $400 for same item. And imagine in 3 years these will be much harder to find and the price will get jacked up something crazy.

    I feel you can certainly just sell it in the future if you dont need it and can probably sell it for a profit (>90% probability).

    I'm not sure I'm ready to buy a clutch kit from an unknown manufacturer on eBay...but I will sure use the 20% coupon code on something else! So thanks for the heads-up!

    I agree. But I'd take a gamble only cause I'd be doing the work and it wouldn't be a big job. If I were paying a shop to do the job I'd buy a brand name clutch locally or from a reputable company. If you pay to have the elcheapo one installed and it blows apart or the throwout bearing piles up in 6 months you're really not saving anything.
    I don't picture no name mirage clutches going up in value so don't hoard too many.

    Thanks for that information guys, I did not consider that a generic brand may be of a lower quality than OEM.

    But I do feel that the clutch can be sold in the future for over $100 so for me it seems like a good investment. But I saw a thread here a few days ago about a taxi Mirage that wore out the clutch at 40k miles (original stock clutch)

    I dont want to end up in a scenario paying $400 for the part in 3 years. In my case I would not have the know-how to install it myself so I am already going to pay a pretty penny to the local mechanic to install the dang thing.

    UPDATE: I read the feedback of this eBay vendor and he pretty much only sells clutch kits and feedback is almost 100% all positive on the clutches so I believe the quality is good.

    Newbies: Keep in mind that the clutch is not covered by the bumper-to-bumper warranty and if you wear yours out than you will need to pay for it out of pocket.

    All this discussion reminds me of a time I bought some thing online (from Amazon I think...) Anyway I put it away to use some other day. When I tried it, it didn't work for some dopey reason but it was way too late to return it. The lesson learned was to test it out as soon as I get it.

    Also consider a lot of shops won't install parts they didn't provide.
