The dual mass flywheel supposedly makes for a smoother clutch engagement. In 
my experiance the effect is minimal. They do fail on occasion and yes they 
do generally cost a hefty sum of money. Single mass replacement depends 
heavily on the vehicle in question. Vehicles that have a good aftermarket 
tuner following generally have a lighter single mass flywheel availible, and 
some other vehicles can use stock single mass flywheels from other vehicles 
(dual mass 911's can be back-dated).
