Steve:  like most of us, I'll have two flywheels; the 200q20v 3B flywheel, and the coupe quattro flywheel.
I assume machining the 3B one to match peter's S2 (3B) flywheel is not what you mean?  Should I just use the coupe flywheel?

That seems to indicate that the euro 3B flywheel is not the same as the 200q20v flywheel, since they don't mention the throwout bearing issue.
