How long did your clutch last?

For those of you who have changed your clutch, how many miles did you get out of it (also comment on what percentage of your mileage was city miles since hwy miles are drastically different)?

According to documentation from the dealership,the first clutch lasted to 25k. It was said to be "smelling and upon further inspection contained blue residue". Currently have 54k on car(29k on new clutch) and it grabs strong.

When my clutch goes (which will be a while since I only put about 6k/year on the car) I will be getting a lightweight flywheel also...

I had the clutch replaced while the dealer was repairing the RMS (29,990miles). According to the dealer it was still in good shape but i opted to change it since i was only paying for parts and not labor. Car now has 15k on the second clutch and its doing just fine
