If your laggy is around 02 or later it will have a dual mass flywheel, probably valeo. These have a tendancy to wear out very much quicker than conventional clutches and are very costly to replace. 600 typical mr clutch type price. Usually recommend replacing concentric slave cyl also adding another 100. Mine failed at 42000 miles but the car does almost all stop start traffic and the bloke who fixed it said this is typical for a DMF cutch. By the way lots of new cars now have these VW, Ford BMW etc. All it does is make the drive train smoother and takes up some of the torsional shock loading in the gearbox. Give me a conventional clutch anyday. last 150000 miles if you are careful. So much for modern technology eh.
