Getting my clutch replaced today!
So I have a 2006 CTS 3.6 6 speed. I got a valeo clutch since it had good reviews and amazon had a black friday sale on it for $175 plus shipping. The labor price is $270. They said that the flywheel may not need to be replaced but if it does then it is $640 from their hook up or $1200 from the dealership! Ill let you guys know how the valeo works out for me.

Well im at about 90600 miles and clutch still feels good. It lost its super grabiness that made it feel similar to my old mustangs racing clutch slightly. It now has a smooth grab and if your arent careful or paying attention it will give you a jerk (if you don't rev match properly). I am still glad that I went with this clutch.
Still over paranoid about heat glazing it because that is what happened to my other clutch even though it was the previous owners fault. I just dont want it to happen again! Haha
