Could it have been cubicsupport who typed:

Forget the clutch and give it a timing belt and oil change if overdue ASAP
! if the timing belt goes at that value, it becomes scrap in a few
miliseconds!!! and the turbo doesnt like dirty oil..... Take it to an
independant VAG specialist and should cost a lot less than £300 fo an
oil/filter change and timing belt.
as far as the clutch life is concerned, how long is a piece of string? it
could last 1 mile or 50,000 (I have had 250,000 out of a Mercedes on one
clutch and a year after I sold it it is still going) The cost of a clutch
plate is the difference between inspecting it and fixing it.
