Clutch feels different...

Just had my 1200 mile service and the first thing I noticed was that the clutch "felt" different as I was driving it off the lot. Depressing the pedal was much lighter, lacked feel and was kind of spongy. Shifting is smoother but lacks the snap when the clutch is quickly released under moderate throttle and the car feels less powerful. The dealer performed a multi point inspection with a run-in check and was wondering if adjusting the clutch was part of this service?

I felt the same right after I got my 1200 miles service done too. But after a while, it become "normal" again.

The service took about 4 hours and I had someone pick me up while the service was done. This is the only car I have with a manual gearbox. My biggest fear is someone at the dealership decided to go for a joy ride and jacked the clutch.
