If the clutch is slipping a lot you will be loosing a lot of power, my mini sounds like a normal car when I drive it, except for the sporty sound :>) .
As The Nun said when you are driving it check the tacho, if the needle is climbing and you're not getting matching acceleration then you have a problem.
If the free clutch is still on offer I'd get that done, ask them exactly what they are changing as there are some parts that should be changed at the same time even if you have to pay for them, I think things like the throw bearing, some sort of lever / arm if you do a search you should be able to find the correct names.
