I shopped around for a while to find a clutch worthy of all the work. I went with the Valeo for several reasons.
1) Valeo manufactures the factory clutch.
2. The OEM DMF is POS, after reading around online I came to the conclusion that if the OEM clutch canít even last 50k whatís the sense of putting it back in. ďdonít be stupid and reinstall an OEMĒ
3) Other conversions and sport clutches either make noise or burn out really quick.

So how does it feel?? Light like a Honda or VW clutch. It grabs good! No slipping! Look around on the internet you while find only good reviews about this set up. Again do yourself a favor and buy this kit. Its cheep and gives you the peace of mind that itís not going to fail like the OEM DMF. I would also suggest having your clutch slave and control arm bushings done why youíre at it. Saves $$$$$$$$$$$$

I purchased this setup for my 05 R53 with 117k miles in 2013. Now it is 2017, and with 172K miles, it still feels solid. This was the best purchase I have made with my r53.
