How often do you have to change the clutch? Every 30k miles? 40k?

That's kind of like asking "How long is a piece of string?"

It really depends on how you drive
Could be 30k , could be 100k+

Change it when it starts to slip

I had the clutch and flywheel replaced at 90,000KM because clutch pedal was very hard to depress $2100.
Bearing was fine and left alone.
I do not track my car.

We have customer's with 200K on the factory unit, and others who are on their third by 100K. Has more to do with driving style and environment than miles.

When people refer to has to do with their driving styles, what does that comprise of?

Are there certain driving styles that are easier or harder on clutches/transmissions? revving high, racing, engine breaking, "not knowing how to drive a standard transmission vehicle"/ mashing gears...

Driving style covers a lot of sins, some people ride their clutches, particularly on hill stops; others beat up the clutch because they drive in urban environments (traffic light to traffic light). Some are harder on them because they spend a lot of time on road course tracks.

Just shy of $2000 earlier this year for clutch, flywheel IMS and RMS. I'm in Delaware where everything is cheeper.

When a clutch/transmission starts slipping what does that feel like? Does it mean anything if occasionally it might slightly harder to get into a certain gear?

I have only had the car for a couple weeks and just want some clarity.

A typical symptom of a slipping clutch is the RPM goes up without a corresponding speed increase.

Sorry for the stupid question, but do we have to change/service clutch (or any equivalent) on a Tiptronic?

Another symptom of a weak clutch is it releases way high on the pedal (like almost before it runs out of room when you take your foot off the clutch).

I had the clutch and RMS changed on my CSS this spring - $1700. Right around 30K mi. I use my CSS for DEs and I don't know how to heel-toe so I was abusing the clutch with high rev downshifts. Since I'm now $1700 lighter, I've gone to using more brakes to slow me down. A set of pads is $165. The math works out better.

My clutch shot craps after a DE w/e at my local track and 9 days before I was supposed to leave for a 3 day DE at COTA. The folks at Woodhouse did an excellent job of working me into their schedule and got it done at 5pm the day before I left. I really had to cross my fingers that everything was done correctly, but it was and I didn't have any issues to, at, or back from COTA.

No, the Tip uses a torque converter in place of a clutch and only requires fluid changes.

I think I paid $4k. This included new OEM flywheel the old was close to ashtray condition. RMS was upgraded with the Cayenne unit and both rear axle boots were serviced both were torn not unsual given the mileage. LNE dual row bearing and the requisite oil change to keep it all kosher. Lots of weekends in NYC meant only 70k miles on original and I still suck at clutching out in reverse.
