wow that sounds like a lot of miles.
my non-US model MC-stradale comes with the 599 tranny which i always used in race mode and driving it like a bat out of hell. luckily my cars seldom see 10k miles. so 33k miles out of urs is actually super awesome even though they are different trannys.

They said that the most anyone had gotten before me was 26K. I drive the car probably more aggressively than anyone else and use Sport mode probably 50% of the time. BUT. . . I almost never downshift in city traffic. I almost always shift to neutral. And that has allowed me to save a substantial amount of clutch wear.

That's fantastic! Certainly the longest I've ever heard of. They definitely wear better when you are harder on them, to the extent it's not meant to be used lightly off/on, that will cause more wear when it's not completely engaged. I'd say all things considered you did really really well.

Actually your trans is the same as his with different software as far as I know. It is an awesome gearbox

As Cstroked mentions, I have the same gearbox since I have the 2009 GTS MC Shift car.
