Like I said, it's not a wear item that you should have to change under 100K. They are wet clutches INSIDE the unit and are not serviceable. By the design I can infer that BMW never expects that they will wear out or need servicing. In 5-7 years we may come to find out that under certain conditions they were wrong. Either way, my advice to you is to get an extended warranty if you plan to keep the car outside of 50K. The parts for this car are not cheap and they will break if it's anything like the E46M3.
