Default Need fairly quick advice/input

I apologize for not properly utilizing the search feature. Please take it easy on me as Iím in a time crunch.

I blught my mini yesterday from a Mini dealership. 57k on the clock, interior, exterior, engine bay all in immaculate condition. Was garage kept and driven by an older woman whom traded it in for a new clubman.

Car ran amazingly for the test drives. Clutch seemed to stick perfectly, no slip and no stink. We have put 19 miles on it since leaving the dealership.

I hopped in on this morning and made it a mile from home before it now will not move. Shifter seems to go into gear, car runs and idles great, no CEL.

Stinks like burnt clutch. My question is:

the dealershipoffers a 48 hour no no questions asked return policy. If they offer to replace the clutch, should I still keep it? It really is in immaculate condition but Iíve never had a clutch go out that quickly. Is that a sign of something bigger? Thanks!

Not interested in ďThe best way to fix an r56 is to subtract 3Ē discussions. Looking for actual tips. This wonít be a modded car. It will be staying stock and driven a max of 5-6k per year.

also, I have been driving manual cars for 15 years, so I know it wasnít my driving
