Update on the clutch situation:
Clutch failed after 11k miles.
Company does NOT honor warranty.
BBB rating F.

I wish I had heard the "Don't buy a clutch on ebay." advise prior, it was very sound.

At least ebay is assisting me in forcing the seller to respond, sick of cold shoulder.

I'll tell you this, as much labor is involved in clutch change on these cars, buy the best clutch you can afford that is well known by owners to last a long time.

VR/F1 are terrible from many users experiences, including my own, wish I had known.

I hope this info serves to help others not have to do bi-yearly clutch changes...
Thats a whole lot of down time for one year, two clutch changes.

Months of down time over a 2x bad clutches OR buy a quality lasting part, your choice.
