Default Average lifespan of a factory clutch?

Just wondering what the average lifespan of a factory clutch and flywheel is on a Tiburon. Do most people usually get about 100K on them or does it start to wear out before hand? I know it all depends on how you drive the car but lets say you just drive the car normally without too much abuse.

If you don't sit in traffic and don't drive the sh*t out of it. I would think you could easily go over 100k. I pulled my stock clutch to throw in an ACT at 50ish K and it still looked decent. I drove like an idiot on it and overheated it at least once. If you sit in traffic a lot and drive the poo out of it I would say under 100k expected. If you just drive a bit hard from time to time and do a lot of highway. I'd say 125k - maybe even 150 before it starts to get worn out. That is assuming the hydraulic stuff doesn't go bad, the bearing stays together, etc.

My parts car supposedly had the original clutch at 125k miles when the original timing belt broke.

I have 218k on the factory clutch in one Accent, and that's the race car.
