Would be interesting if you could summarise apart from regular servicing, what you have had to replace over that number of miles.
Car looks great and it's great to see it handling that kind of mileage. You have to tell us what you do to make the CC clutch last that long. Driving style, shift to neutral to glide to a stop or downshift to use engine braking? Shift to neutral at stoplights? Sport mode all the time? ect ect. Thanks for sharing.
172k miles on original pads...on a Maserati....OK now you're just making stuff up That's really incredible. Even more incredible is the fact he downshifted which adds more clutch wear per mile and he still got 130k miles out of the clutch. That has to be a well babied car and all highway miles and even so it's still very impressive. Thanks for sharing the details and I hope you get another 130k miles out of your new clutch!Since the original owner of the car put the majority of the miles on that clutch, I'll relay the driving style that he suggested to me. He said that he absolutely always stayed out of auto mode. He said that's a complete "no no". He didnt mention ever using sport mode, however I greatly prefer it and logically it seems like it would prolong the clutch life as it slips the clutch a lot less.
Something else the original owner mentioned that blew me away is that the car has its original brake pads and rotors. He said he always downshifted to slow down the car and would brake as little as possible. At 172k, the brakes actually have about 20% life left. I think they'll make it to 200k! The service records confirm that there has never been any brake work aside from fluid changes.
