I'm in the same boat. I've only once had to replace a clutch, and it burned out because of a mechanical problem (rust on the clutch arm preventing it from fully engaging). Not because of the nut behind the wheel.

But I'm also going to say you're not probably representative of the average manual transmission driver. Just look at your car!

(By the way: I got your e-mail. Will get back to you.)
