 The kit has bed in a bit now and does feel better/smoother. I've done about 600 miles and it's gradually got a bit better. It aint perfect but we're getting there :)

One thing to note is the bite point was really low initially. Now it's not, it's probably just ABOVE half way on the pedal so closer to the top of the pedal, it was like this with my old clutch. Is this normal? :) Or should I be worried.

Just a quickie.

I still get quite bad juddering in 1st gear with this setup 3 months on and 3000 miles later.

It's been suggested the friction plate in the kit (don't ask me what it does as I dunno lol) could be faulty.

Any ideas if this is likely? Is this gonna knacker my gearbox? It's still snatchy/jerky on and off the throttle... to be honest it's ruined how the car drives to me, I'll never get it feeling great to drive for as long as this clutch is in place :(
