4000csq maint

I have a maintenance question on my '86 4000csq. It just went over the 
100K miles mark. Runs fine, no oil consumption, etc. My question is 
should I consider changing the transaxel fluid? Dealer of course says 
it's lifetime fluid. But, as I have religiously changed both oil and 
filter every 3K miles I have a hard time believing tranny fluid doesn't 
need some attention after 100K miles. What's the net opinion? And if 
recommended what does everyone advise - Redline?

Second question: same car, how long can I expect the clutch to last. 
Drive briskly, but easy on clutch, e.g. don't hold on hills, double 
clutch on downshifting (left over from by T series MG days I guess). I 
know this is a hard one to estimate, but go  ahead please and take a guess.

TNX in advance for any advice/opinion - jonb@u.washington.edu
