135i clutch out at 46k miles?

Hey guys, I bought my first bmw (135i 2009) Friday night and long story short the "clutch" went out on me the very next day.

Story: I was driving normal as a approached a red light I pressed the clutch to the floor and lifted my foot and the clutch stayed on the floor. I got the car in 1st and pulled into a parking lot and had it taken to BMW of Nashville. I was almost positive it was just going to be a slave cylinder. They called today to let me know it is the clutch. The clutch didn't show any signs of slipping or burning smell. They haven't pulled the tranny yet but they're positive its the clutch. I didn't notice any fluid leaking.

I'm wanting to see what everyones input is on the subject. Good thing is that I have a BMW maint. plan on the car but that only covers the clutch, not the flywheel. The flywheel alone is a $1.4k job.

Thanks, Justin
