Aside from two Ford Focus' I've had Volkswagens and one time when the GTI was in for service they actually commented on the factory perfect state of the clutch and that I obviously knew how to drive.
I'm not bragging by any means but extending comments that they can tell how the car is driven by what wear is evident. It was a wonderful compliment and reminded me of my initial training on back roads with my dad and his near religious care of a clutch. Clutch abuse was not tolerated and "riding" the clutch was a cardinal sin. I must be doing something right.
