I can't see this being a clutch problem. If the clutch was slipping, you would have noticed it more when changing into the higher gears, since the engine revs would have come down slowly (like driving an automatic).

Sorry to hear you've had to pay out for a clutch. If it softens the blow, my MK3 cost about 1400 by the time they had convinced us to have a new starter motor and fitted a new pulley kit as well.

I can't see how the clutch problem would have given you a power loss though. Doesn't seem to make sense. At least you're up and running again though.
