Average life in miles for 2nd Gen mini clutch

Thought I'd start a thread to see just how long the average in miles that clutches are lasting in 2nd gen minis. I'll start by posting my info:

Owner: Bruce
Year: 2007
Model: Mini Convertible base model
Transmission: 5 speed manual
Mileage / date at purchase: 116,185 on 07/16/2014
Mileage / date clutch broke: 116,679 on 08/08/2014
Total miles before clutch broke: No previous maintenance history available on car (bought from broker) so I have no idea how many miles were on the clutch before it broke.
Replaced with OEM parts or what brand?: Not sure yet.
What all was replaced: Not sure yet as it is being repair now and I will update once repair is done.
What was the total price: Not sure yet as it is being repair now and I will update once repair is done.
Who did the repair: Not sure yet. Car is sitting at local mechanic waiting for quote.
Notes / Story: The clutch burnt out at 116,679 miles on 08/08/2014. I purchased this car on 07/16/2014 with 116,185 miles. I bought the car from a local broker so there's no vehicles history so I'm not sure if clutch was ever replaced by the prior owner. I got 494 miles out of the car before the clutch wore out. Crazy rubber / plastic burning smell about 1 week before it went out but no noticeable slipping and then two days ago complete failure of the clutch. I guess I should have had a mechanic inspect the car prior to purchase! ugggh!!!

For the list I thought it would be helpful if people who have had clutch replacements in their minis list their information and story in this thread using the below template: So if you could copy and paste the below template into your post and fill out the info then I think it would be helpful for everyone to see.

Owner:
Year:
Model:
Transmission:
Mileage / date at purchase: xxxx miles on DD/MM/YYYY
Mileage / date clutch broke: xxxx miles on DD/MM/YYYY
Total miles before clutch broke:
Replaced with OEM parts or what brand?:
What all was replaced:
What was the total price:
Who did the repair:
Mostly how do you drive your car? around town, freeway, hard racing?:
Notes / Story:

Driving school clutches can last 3000 miles sometimes!!
I did over 100000 miles on one and still going strong, you cant really say, it all depends on how the drivers use the car.
