130k, 6MT, seems like it still grabs well.

I'm always worried though, as my e36 M3 clutch died a horrible death at around 105k, but I bought it used with 40k and I learned how to drive stick on it.

Default Re: E46 M3 Clutch Life

I have 85kmiles on mine and I can't tell because one of my clutch bearings screams at me whenever my foot isn't on the clutch at a full stop. PO claims it's a new clutch but I'm probably going to redo in the spring. *shrug*

I'm also at 69k but unfortunately forgot how it feels as it's been of the road for some time now awaiting an smg pump. But I don't recall any issues at all

Default E46 M3 Clutch Life

122k 6sp original clutch. Just switched mine out for a Uuc though, but the original still had loads of life.
