E.g

Valeo is the OE clutch.

I fitted an AP clutch 80,000km ago on the recommendation of a well known local Land Rover garage and it's still going ok, having said that the Valeo lasted 222,000km. (at the time a number of Valeo's were having centres fail)

The Valeo plate's facing looked brand new, but the springs were loose as buggery, almost falling out

The Pressure plate was knackered at that distance, diaphragm finger height was all over the place and the fingers were half worn through, slipper pads gone on the fork, etc.

The reason the clutch came out was a broken fork.
