that is really at your discretion (or the mechanics). i replaced (my local mechanic) my clutch and the flywheel was not bad enough to warrant the cash money for the dmf. you have to see if there are a lot of burn marks. tip: by all means do not buy your parts from the stealership. i think the stealership wanted 1400 for all and Bavarian auto parts wanted like 550. those prices include the dmf even though i passed on the dmf. i have 131K on the original flywheel and no problems. i beat this car like no other and she takes it daily.

I replaced mine at 140k and the flywheel looked ok so I just replaced the disk, pressure plate and the T/O bearing. I have 155k miles now and its OK.

as far as i know you can not get a dmf resurfaced. Thats what everyone that i talked to told me. because it is a dmf, it costs a lot more money for a new one. but i would never ever buy a new one. i would buy it from an auto recycling center first.

No re-surfacing, just inspected it for any damage and cleaned it with brake cleaner.

well i would change the fly wheel only if the mech advises u 2 but if he doesnt than it no real point wasting money , but than again u might just want a brand new one so everything can break in together. plus u won't have to worry about it for a while. just a thought
