    Ive found an Exedy OEM clutch set and a Fidanza Flywheel combo for about $275 shipped. The flywheel from summit racing is $217 and the clutch is $300! My question is why is it so cheap and would you trust it in your car. i want to save money and it is new brand-name stuff. but it's such a important part of the car. Ive seen bad things happen when a pressure-plate assembly comes apart at 7k rpms.

    if it's the same company that is making the product. And you are sure that the ebay product is authentic. there should be no worries. The only difference is that you ae most likely buying from a smaller, private dealer. Who is selling it for cheaper.


    Be sure to check there user rating, before, you buy from them.

    And try to by from Ebay power sellers and use paypal. Using those two helps your chances of getting your money back incase you get scammed.

    Good advice, Power Sellers are usually businesses that have been there for a while retained a 98% positive feedback and are there in the long run. Be very skeptical of new users and ridiculously "too good to be true" pricing.

    I have been doing eBay for a long time and completed over 30,000 auctions so I know quite a bit in the field ;)

    Sounds like they stand behind their product. Let us know how it goes.

    ALWAYS research the company on ebay. I usally go through pages and pages of their feedback. But then again, im not a huge ebay guy. Ive seen friends get screwed from ebay so i just stand clear.
