Difficulty engaging gear can be clutch, wouldn't be surprised if it was after 107k but I'd also expect the bite point to have lowered. Clutch fluid isn't a big job, so I reckon do that first and see what symptoms remain.
My clutch bite point felt spot on, but had difficulty engaging first gear. The clutch was done and all perfect now. I would say you need to get the clutch/flywheel done.

I had the same issue with the clutch sticking after hard acceleration. Replaced the clutch with a SPEC Stage2+ clutch and also went with single mass flywheel from SPEC and the issue was solved. Still running on the orignal return pipe.

well sadly due to shipping companys who suck, the parcel is being held for 10 days at customs before they can clear it!!! so the flywheel is not likeley to arrive untill 25th december as apposed to the 10th like they told me so anyone ordering from rock auto please expect LONG waits for your parts :(

Won’t arrive 25th either as Christmas Day. You might be lucky and get it before, but likely 27th onwards. :(
