Just joined the forums so sorry for the late reply to this thread.

I recently had a problem with my clutch slipping (ABT'd Ibiza TDI 130).

Like everyone else, it only seemed to happen in the cold - but after demonstrating it to the dealer they put a new (standard) clutch in under warranty. Apparently the old one was hardly worn although it had been slipping for 3 or 4 weeks.

Mine slipped around peak torque, generally around 2000rpm in 3/4/5/6 gears.

The new one hasn't slipped yet, but even if it does, at least I've got 20k miles less wear on it...

I didn't tell the dealer it was chipped, and 2 or 3 of their techs took it out for a drive and never mentioned anything. Fortunately my chip was supplied by Seat (Holland) and is covered by the pan-European warranty...but I thought I'd try and avoid discussing the subject with the dealer in the first place !
