Guys

Im very interested in a car at RSJ and whilst its got a fully stamped up service book, there are hardly any old invoices that come with it and certainly none for a clutch.

Its on 61,000 miles and the guys at RSJ tell me that it must of had a clutch by now as they only last about 35,000 miles. Can anyone tell me if 35k is roughly how long a clutch is likely to last or do you think at the current 61,000 miles it could still be on its original clutch?

Depends on how the car is driven IMO.

My old 996 had an original clutch all the way to 80,000 miles, current 997 original lasted until 60,000

Definitely on previous owner usage. Our Audi is on 120k of mostly motorway/country road driving and it's in the original clutch with no signs of needing a replacement yet.

Yes very much depends on the previous drivers respect for the clutch . Track days and even constant parking on a steep slope can wreck a clutch.

All i received with my car on purchase was service history book and one mot certificate.

A well respected indy had serviced the car for 4 years prior to my purchase. I phoned them and they kindly emailed me several invoices for work they had done.

If the clutch aint slipping i would not worry about it, just budget £1200 for a new one . Please see my recent thread " price of a clutch "

Good luck with the purchase

My clutch was on its way out at about 40k miles.

Revolution near Leeds supplied and fitted a new one for a grand.

New clutch=Good opportunity to fit new IMS bearing if required, and maybe a lightweight flywheel.

My 997 Turbo was on original clutch until 65 K when I sold it. No issues.

My 996 turbo is still on the original clutch after 79k miles. Most of these miles during my ownership have been motorway and A roads, so clutch wear is relatively light. As others have said, the type of driving makes all the difference - my Honda Accord was still on its original clutch when I sold it at 117k miles.

I would say an original clutch could go as early as 35k miles (depending how it is driven) but can also last double that and beyond.

I recently had the clutch on my C2S changed at 53k.
My Indy believed it had not been changed before.
