I think driving style matters more than driving conditions. Looking after the clutch from a standing start obviously helps, but I think rev-matched downshifts are what really keeps the clutch going.

I bought my 2.5 with a very heavy clutch on 75k miles. People who know these cars and drove it said "yup, that's going to need a new clutch any day now". Well, here we are two and half years later and it's on 110k on the same clutch. I drive it like I stole it. It's very hilly where I live. But I rev match every down shift.
