+1! Hassan, a clutch is a "wear" item that needs to be replaced just like tires or brakes (just not as frequently). If you can get 100K miles out of a clutch disc, pressure plate, and throw out bearing than you have done just about what they are designed for with moderate driving. Now then, you can also spin a clutch in an afternoon if you really put your mind to it and are driving in the right conditions~! Of course you will find folks who have gotten much more than 100K miles out of their clutch too. My wife got 120K miles out of her 325e clutch and it was still fine when we sold the car. Of course that was very moderate city driving (back and forth from one shopping center to another).
