i think every clutch feels different, mines a 1999 1.3 and before i changed the clutch the bite point was quite high, and now the new one is very low.
by the way they're easy to change if you need to.

My clutch is really high to bite but i suspect it is on it's way out now as it also slips a little in second... holdawayt where did you purchase a new clutch from and was it expensive? Mine is a 1995 but probably won't pass the next MOT anyway, took a full day's welding to get it through this one :)

My clutch is quite low too.

That said I do tend to hear a slight rattling noise when I lift my foot off it whilst in neutral. Not quite sure if it's on its way out, just have a slight difficulty getting it into reverse every now and then.
