Talk to your local clutch repairer.Not your dealership, he will tell you a more unbiased opinion..Price and performance..

i got mine for $450 in my eb. that included clutch, pressure plate, thrust bearing and new tranny oil and fitting. It also included flywheel machining. I think the clutch kit alone is worth about $240, $60 for machining and the rest labour.

i got prices up to $800 so depends where you go..

three clutches? - how many km?

Go to your local brake and clutch place and get heavy duty kit - about $300 usually. You should get 100,000km driven properly.

If you can....get an XE clutch, they were a bit bigger than the XF one, and i've been told they are a lot stronger
