    I have a 2002 Murcielago with 22k miles. Clutch is on the way out. Anyone have suggestions on who to get a replacement clutch from?

    Someone recommended Hitech Exotic for a Kevlar version which lasts longer than the OEM.

    As I found out a while ago, it's an engine out job requiring 40 or more hours of labor.

    Any other suggestions for suppliers or anyone with personal experience in this endeavour?

    I am a big fan of the OEM clutch.

    Can you tell me why? Is it less grabby than a Kevlar aftermarket unit? It seems to me that the OEM clutch life span is too short.
    I know a Ferrari 360 with F1 chews up clutches but that is understandable.

    I had a multi plate carbon clutch on a 2003 Murci and it chattered, had difficult engagement (manual) and a short life. Stock has the easiest engagement, I've consistently gotten 20k miles out of stock units, my current LP640 has 612 wheel horsepower and I have dozens of hard launches on the clutch with no clutch issues, so the stock unit has my vote. The stock units re-covered with carbon are likely great units, but with the ease of stock I'm fine sticking to it.

    Thanks for that. Is there a significant cost difference OEM vs aftermarket?
    My car is more of a street driver. The clutch on my track car gives the chatter, if I need it.
