Don't drive it. If you haven't already, you can chew up the very expensive flywheel very quickly.

Search the forum to read about other preventative maintanence "opportunities" while you're doing the clutch like: RMS seal, IMS bearing, dual-mass fly wheel vs light weight flywheel, etc. Do all? do some? do none? You find lots of opinions and discussion. You'll have to decide what is right for you, your car, and your budget.

I just changed mine recently at 97k miles. It was not slipping yet but there was very little meat left. FW was also out of spec so off it came along with IMS bearing, RMS. I think 97k on an original clutch and FW with a lot of AX and track time pretty phenomenal.
