Is it a true statement that all the issues we read about regarding short clutch life, fall squarely in the camp of the Cambiocorsa sequential gear boxes?

Is there any data regarding clutch life on 'traditional' 6-speed manual gear boxes?

I'd be willing to consider a 2002 Manual over a 2004 CC if that was the case...

it all comes down to how the car is used in either case.
no, given everything being equal (same driving style, same mileage, same stop and go traffic), so far we have seen better lifespan on a MT over the CC.

yes but the life is all over the place so on both cars but i agree the manual should last longer.

i have not seen ppl reporting MT being replaced at less than 10k.

I would have to agree here. I have seen complaints about the CC going early and (several accounts) and yet to hear of the 6mt going as early as the CC.

I blew my 6 MT in m3 around 35k. But I raped it every stoplight and teenage girls also drove it so that was my fault :D

It seems the ratio between cc vs 6mt is maybe 70% cc vs 30% 6MT? (Cars I see for sale)
