Calling all who replaced oem clutch/t.o.b

I have a 2015 6 speed since new it has always made a little noise when clutch is out and in neutral. Like at a drive thru. Wondering if replacing the crappy OEM TOB fixes the issue?
I think a master thread with information on clutch/ t.o.b replacement would be useful to many.

Looking for reviews from those who have changed, upgraded to other setups such as national bearing t.o.b or centerforce, luk, spec clutch kits.

Hopefully we can get some good participation and some good information rolling.

If your transmission is in neutral and the clutch is not pushed in, It is not a throw out bearing.

If you push in the clutch with it in or out of gear, and there is noise it is your throw out bearing.

I changed my clutch out with a center force clutch with there TOB. my noise stopped.

I have an '08 and it was jumping out of 1st gear on take off. Recall, so the dealer fixed it, kinda. The Throw out bearing made noise after that. Still pops outta gear from time to time, but now there is an intermittent god awful screeching sound and a vibration. I can not replicate it, the dealer's mechanic drove it and couldn't replicate it. I wonder if it is the TOB?

If you're gonna be fucking weird, own it.
