Question M3/M4 6MT clutch life

Hi folks,

I recently got my first ever 6MT M car - G82 M4.

How long did your last generation M3/M4 clutch last? I just want to have an idea about when to replace the clutch.

Side note: I had a WRX STI in the past but it only lasted 8,000 miles with a brand new OEM clutch (yes I drove aggressively).

Thanks.

The clutches used in M cars last forever. Our E46 had 180k miles, many of those double-use at the track, and was still on the original clutch.

In the E9X and F8X gen the 6MTs with the stock clutch hold up to around 650ftlb, so quite a bit.

In my F82, I bought the service plan that replaces brakes and the clutch if they're worn within 3 years/36k miles (if I remember correctly). I'm a couple years past that and haven't come close to needing the clutch replaced.

No clutch issues with M cars.
