Q: 2008 BMW 535xi clutch question on 2008 BMW 535xi

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I am seriously contemplating purchasing a minty-appearing 2008 535xi equipped with a turbo-charged V6 & a 6-speed standard transmission with a clean CarFax report and 87k miles by a single owner. My immediate concerns focus upon the manual clutch.

1] With normal human driving habits [hard-pressed to define that], what is the usual clutch life in miles?

2] Assuming the worst, what should I anticipate a complete replacing of the manual clutch to cost me [arm, leg, testicles & 1st-born child?

3] Any idiosyncratic or anomalous traits I need to be aware of for this model?

I am planning to go look at & test drive it tomorrow, 03/31/2014.
