03 R53 Very Happy Perfect modding beast! I didn't realise the R56 Clutches were as bad as the R53s Sad

Some are far worse going at around the 20-30,000 mile mark!! Another inherient design flaw! But this can be overcome by replacing when it goes with a sportier lighter single mass flywheel and maybe ceramic plate!
