Got 42,600 on orginal clutch. Porsche dealer offered me 24K as a trade in.
I have 42,600 on my original clutch. No current slipping, car drives like a beast. I think the key for me was having the TO bearing replaced by the dealer at about 20,000 miles.
I have also spoken with some Maserati techs and they have had a few original clutches go north of 50,000 miles. All depends on how you drive. I only drive in sport, no reverse, coast in neutral to stops. The CC is a BLAST to drive.
If I were you I would consider a clean CC car 04 and older, and as soon as you get a new clutch, get the DBW enhancement and that should really extend your clutch life and enhance your driving experience. Best of both worlds.
I only drive 6,000 miles each year, so I certainly got my monies worth. I got a quote from Carlos at Classic coach, super nice guy, everything was 3,700 plus tax. However, my baby is now going to be sold or most likely traded in on a 2010 GT S. Last week a Porsche dealer offered me 24,000 towards a trade in and Algar in Philly told me they could do that as well.
That gives you an idea what the current trade in value of an 04 CC with 43K miles is. Again it could also be a grand or two higher or lower.
Best of luck in your search. Make sure you get a car you love. These cars offer amazing bang for your buck and are a blast to drive!
