Rule of thumb is 2 clutches per fly wheel. Though personally when I did mine, I just replaced it anyway since it's a small part of the overall cost.

It's normal wear pattern. The outside material has more wear than closer to center because outside had been sliding a longer distance than inside, based on
distance = r*Pi ; r is radius of disk

I used the Valeo SMF. It's fine. I did have cold chatter for a while as it broke in. There is a bit more vibration at low revs if I'm lugging it. So I don't.

One of the big reasons I got rid of the DMF is the SAC-- Self- Adjusting Clutch. I HATE having the bite point moving around. With the Valeo kit, it's now 'not self adjusting'.
Right... but it'll still wear the whole friction plate out, and the hydraulics will compensate, so, err....

We're all different...

Only reuse it if you don't mind taking the trans back out if it chatters. Been there and done that on a customers car. After that fiasco I never reused them.
I really don't like to pull a trans twice!
