Currently have 263,000 on my manual tranmission and seems kinda stiff. Doesn't shift smooth like it use to. Put its 1st clutch in 10k miles ago, when with a single mass flywheel. What kinda miles is expected and how many have yall seen?

Depends on your driving characteristics. I have over 100k on my last one. First went out at 30- dealer did as warranty. they said something was wrong on factory install. Second around 100k. Flywheel was messing up so I replaced whole thing. I wanted to do the single but was always advised not to. The setup allows easy engagement/disengagement. The dual mass flywheels are the weak points on the twin turbo Audi 2.7's and also most all 95 and newer Porsches that we replace at work. Seems to be problematic in the desisn eventually getting off centered/true then the setup prematurely wears out the disc or get stuck. VW's seem to get stuck, the aforementioned car models I guess just go anf then burn up the friction material.
Keep us posted on the single mass. I was told they are bullit proof.
