How many miles on your clutch?

I've come to the conclusion I'm going to have to replace my clutch soon. I can feel it slip a tad when starting out in first and I dont get that solid feel when shifting from 1-2 & 2-3. I can usually get a second gear chirp out of my tires but not any more. So I've got 210,000kms on my vehicle, I've owned it since new and I know I'm lucky to get this far. My question is how many miles have you got on your Mk1/1.5 Focus' clutch?

I have 135k MILES on my ST stock clutch. Under normal driving its fine but when i am really getting on it and power shifting it can flare a little and the rpms float for a second until it grabs. I also have some fluid coming from my bellhousing, almost definitely my slave cylinder. But i have never had low brake fluid from it.

161,000 Miles on mine. All the service history I was able to dig up did not show a clutch replacement so I have to assume it is original.

110,000 on mine. If you drive it like a normal person, it should last for many more miles
