    Well took the wifes Freelander to MOT tonight only to find that the clutch is starting to slip:doh:. Where is the best place to get one and is it worth getting the dual mass flywheel conversion kit i keep seeing advertised. on a good note it passed the mot;)

    I had the same but with 91k miles - I replaced the clutch, release mech and the Dual Mass Flywheel - big bucks but piece of mind. I have heard that the solid flywheel gives a harder take up and puts stress on the the transmission.
