I have add a 190e 5 spd, 300e 5 spd, 16v 5 spd,
And the throw out bearing made noise in EVERY model,
MY first one i got the whole clutch system replaced, to find it was new, and it had the same noise , the 300E I dropped the tranny, and everything looked new agian, I drove 100K
with NO problems, 16v is the loudest of the 3, but never any clutch problems, I think all manuals make this noise and we have to live with it
my two cents
