Everything I read about the alternatives to our stock clutches indicates that they are softer than the original ones (2007-09). However, I have to admit that I really like the feel of the stock clutch. It is a bit stiff but over the past year I must have gotten used to the pedal pressure and the fairly high engagement point. I even like the fact that it's engagement is pretty abrupt. The only thing that I do not like is the way it shutters when the car is hot (like in stop and go driving).

Does anyone have any information on a clutch that has a similar feel as the stock one?

A question for you guys who have the 2010 TSB clutches- are they holding up and are you still happy with them?

About 2.5k miles and on its second season, drives great and no issues. Much more enjoyable to drive now.

I purchased a brand new 2010 TSB clutch, discs and flywheel for $500 (incl shipping). That seemed like a decent deal considering I plan to keep the car closer to stock.

One last question, please- for those of you who have switched to the TSB clutch where does the new clutch engage? Mine engages at nearly the end of the pedal travel and I was wondering what other had experienced.

Thanks very much
