Stock Clutch Life?

Curious what people are getting out of their stock clutches. Mine has never slipped and i'm currently running Cobb stage 2 and going to be stage 2+ soon.

Currently at 45k, hoping I can make it to 60k without abusing it too much...

I'm reasonably confident mine has not been changed yet. Almost 70K on it.

I had 105K (and counting) on my E36's original clutch until I traded it in for my current car.

Keep in mind, those miles were pretty hard but all of them were highway pulls/spirited country road drives. One bad night at a strip can kill a clutch. It's all in how you drive.

57k on mine. I am making 462 hp and 502 ft-lb torque with JB4 + FBO + meth + E85. I have some slippage in 5th gear at WOT but it's very minor. I don't slip otherwise and when I reduce power by turning off meth I don't have any slippage. I already bought an ACT Street clutch in case but I hope to make this clutch last a lot longer.

Mine is pretty much done for. Replacement at 93,000 Kilometers. Approx. 420Hp/480Tq. I do drive my car hard and also track it regularly. No 1/4 mile. All circuit tracks. Slips noticeably on high boost (12-16lbs).

Have about 51,000 miles on my clutch. No issues at all. Been tuned for about 35K miles and drive pretty hard. No track days and only one day at the drag strip.

all about how you drive.. i know your not gonna like this comparison but my friends also has an e36 m3 and has 160k on it stock clutch and on the other end, my friend has a new challeger with a blower on it making 510whp and doesnt know how to drive and after 2k needed a new clutch after doing a couple brakestands on the clutch and slipping it hard when driving..

In the end, its all up to how you treat it and on average ive seen around 75k on the forum for when people replace their clutches.. Mixed track/street use
