BR Motorsport did mine last August because the rear crankshaft seal had gone.  
At around 125k, it had plenty of wear left but I had it changed because of the 
hideous expense of dismantling an ur-quattro's transmission.

Brian commented that they have to warn people about new clutches, otherwise 
they're likely to strain themselves when the pedal flies away from them.
