I got these, but decided to go with the Lotus Sport Clutch instead and then the dealer put the Lotus flywheel in too instead of the Toda.

Simply smooth! ACT Clutch with Street Discs are designed for smooth engagement, quiet operation and improved durability using only the best organic, spring center designs. The marcel of the disc has been modified to enable quicker action. These discs use special performance linings designed to withstand high heat and abuse.

ACT Heavy Duty Pressure Plates provide increased torque capacity, durability, and extended clutch life. ACT engineers a stronger diaphragm that are heat-treated using an exclusive 3-stage process and the release bearing contact area is hardened to reduce wear. Advanced Clutch Technology still contends that nothing can beat a good quality organic disc for street use.
Increased Torque Capacity, Durability, & Extended Clutch Life Designed for Smooth Engagement & Quiet Operation.

Pressure & Release Travel in the Optimum Working Range. Able to Withstand High Heat & Abuse. 90 Day Warranty. Installation: Direct replacement.

I wish I was ready, it sounds like a great deal. I have enough parts sitting around in boxes in my kitchen and garage, lol. Good luck with the sale.

Clutch and Flywheel are in transit.

Not a biggie, but it did seem strange to have a moderator come into a for sale thread with negative comments...

My Exige is an 06 with 20K miles. The Lotus Sport Clutch allowed me to maintain my warranty. The Toda flywheel was supposed to go in the car, but the tech made a mistake and put the Lotus one in instead. Rather than keep them around in my garage or pay the restocking fee, I decided to sell them directly.
