It's not uncommon with chipped S4s.
As for warranty coverage, the operative word is "chipped", and the answer is
"not very likely"...
'00 s4 6spd, just out of warranty, and not chipped - yet ;-)
I'm not an authority, of course, but I would be surprised if any car
manufacturer would roll over and replace a smoked clutch for free.
If they can find a mechanical defect as the root cause, that's another story,
but if you show up with a blued clutch, you best have your credit card

It's the clutch! And I wouldn't warranty it! It's chipped!
Have a Grateful Day(unless you've made other plans)!
