Opinons on solid flywheel conversion kits

I need to replace the dual mass flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate. I'm looking at these Luk solid flywheel conversion kits. My reason is purely economics but I don't want to open a can of worms. Anybody with opinions on reliability and operation would be appreciated.

some people dont like that there is a slightly different feel and sound to the clutch with the solid flywheel, but there is no "can of worms" to really worrie about. You will have no problems just because of the swap as long as everything is installed right.......

You'd be wise to dump the dual-mass flywheel IMO and goto a solid flywheel set-up.
