This thread is reassuring for someone like myself that runs the car hard but not at the dragstrip (although I'm jealous of M3's that rock in a straight line AND around corners... mine gets eaten up by vettes etc.). I wonder how much stress I'm putting on the clutches. I changed the Pentosin fluid as a preventative thing. What is the ballpark replacement cost for the clutches?

Clutch is 2,800 retail plus install which I'm not sure how much it costs

I mean his clutches seems to be ok, and yours are toasted.
If it is just depends on the use of LC or could it be something else?
