I'm about to crack 100k on my 2008 Sedan , just wondering if anyone has more than 100k on a original clutch?

Talking I am getting there with my 2008 E92 M3 6MT

I have 88,714 miles about to take a week long trip next week to SoCal from Central Texas 1400+ miles one way to VF Engineering and have them install a Special MFest Limited Edition Supercharger . Then in May I will be leading the MFest Texas Chapter Caravan for a week long Trip to Las Vegas for MFest 7 from Central Texas another 1400+ miles one way. Sometime in the Summer I am sure I will have over 100,000+ miles I will be taking a drive to Sanford, FL to the shop PRS and have them replace my clutch with a SPEC Super Twin Clutch kit with a Steel fly wheel and have them replace my rod bearings just to be on the safe side . As for current problems with my clutch the answer is yes and no it depends on how I drive the car. Check out my comments in this thread:

I do not daily drive my M3 I just go to alot of car shows and events on the weekends. I am the MFest Texas Chapter Rep and I travel all over Texas as you may know Texas is not a small state to travel . Other than that I am just loving my M3

dang thats a lot of miles on the clutch. I swear I read somewhere that they normally will need to be replaced at 50-60k? Could be completely wrong. I'm pretty easy on my clutch, so I'm sure it will have a nice life.

Try and pull away in 3rd gear. If the engine stalls, your clutch is okay!

I have 78K on mine.

50-60K...c'mon, man!

[now I wish I hadn't said that!]

Nope not even close. Depends on the abuse or non-abusive. I have seen plenty over 60,000 on the M3.

E39 M5's were known for the 50k clutch replacement, these seem much better. Mine is still scratching the tires into 3rd gear 45k

I'm gonna see how my good friends Individual ZCP clutch feels on the way back from SC, compare the feel and see where I'm at. I just don't see any difference from mile 1. Gotta love this car..
