Dasher, if you are in SF Bay Area there are quite a few mechanics that will do it for $4k

ALWAYS make sure you see the parts list to see what they are putting in the vehicle. Everything needs to be replaced, pilot bearing (also known as the spigot bearing), thrust bearing, flywheel (or get it resurfaced if within spec), clutch/pressure plate, and F1 sensor. I also do them at $4000 but most shops won't if they are covering all those parts correctly. Flush the hydraulic system, and make sure they reset all the clutch parameters/PIS set up.

After you get your new clutch, make sure to bed it in correctly before you go racing down the street. That means for a couple hundred miles drive it slow with easy acceleration. This will keep you from glazing the friction discs or giving yourself headaches later on.
