It wasn't a daily driver for most of its life, and it sat around a bit as I had a second car. Only since moving to FL recently am I driving it more. My 'commute' to work is only 15 miles through back country roads (no traffic and no start and stop), so even as a DD it is not seeing a huge amount of miles.
I'd probably do it while I had access to everything, but that's just me. Just curious what your clutch looked like after 80k. I'm sitting at 61k and thinking at 90 I'll take everything out and replace (RMS, IMS, clutch, plate, flywheel, etc). I have an early '99 (bought new) and have never had a problem with leaks or the dreaded IMS (nor the clutch for that matter), and I drive it daily and change the oil at 5-7k. And I don't baby it.
I am the original owner of a '99 C2, black on black, approaching 60k miles. My Indy recomended oil change and filter, fuel filter, air filter, belt replacement, and it needed a battery. During plug removal, he discovered four or the six coils were cracked! One was pretty bad.; I'm surprised it ran that well. He could only get four Beru's on such short notice. Total damage with labor was less than $1,100, which I consider quite fair. Glad I brought it in, and I'll replace the other two when I get down to FL ( I hadn't been driving it much while it was stored in VA).
