There's a fair bit of gearbox on that plug. How long does a box last in these things????

Please don't tell me this was Zagame?  *shocked*

No need to tell you ;)

I went ballistic and all I got was an Italian *shrug* "That's impossible" from Piero.

Hey Philly, how often do you change the fluid in a DCT gearbox on a 458 Challenge car?

I was looking at the schedule on the bumble bee the other day and it indicates first fluid change at 50,000 km's :eek:

No idea. Challenge cars are shite, wouldn't ever recommend anyone to buy one! Just go straight to GT3.

BUT, FTR, it can't hurt to change it every couple of years or ~ 10,000 km.

Ages if you change the oil and clean the filter often enough (every year).

I saw a 430 lunch a gearbox in 10,000km.... Dealer "serviced" from New....

Why would they change the oil? It's much more profitable if they sell Ferrari a new gearbox under warranty.

GTR was 30,000k from memory, $100 a litre, 11 litres.

Plus labour of course.
Why such a long face?

Must be the same kind of "impossible" I was told when I went ballistic about the pre-2006, fifth hand crappy hardtop fitted to my car in place of the brand new one i had ordered when I ordered my car. :)  Their fraud was almost worth the fun I had catching them out on it and watching the back pedalling and grovelling apologies for the "mix-up".     :)
