There are a ton of factors contributing to clutch wear. I remember Treynor had to have the clutch replaced when he bought his 16M with around 2000 miles. There are some serious idiots buying these cars, that have no clue how to drive them. You never know how the car was driven previously, but a PPI can give a good indication. My suggestion would be to call 3 dealers / shops convenient to your location, or that happen to be selling the car, and find out what the cost would be worst case, to change out the clutch and any other parts that could be needed. Then factor that into your offer. But if you decide to buy a car with a heavily worn clutch, I would make sure it is changed before you take delivery.
