Real cost maintenance 458

Hello,i open this thread about the cost of maintenance of 458.
is the 458 cheaper than audi r8 or porsche carrera maintenance?
this generation of ferrari cars have distribution chain and the gearbox is a double clutch which according to the manufacturer is is the duration of car life,and the big mpg due to the direct injection.i think of ferrari give a big step.but due that seven years free maintenance program i dont see nothing about the real price of maintenance cost.
As we get a surprise when they finish the program seven years .what you think?

If you get a 2012 or newer, cost of maintenance for 7 years is zero!

I just picked up an R8, purchased the maintenance package (all inclusive for 50K miles)... It was only 1,050$ USD.

Nothing is cheaper than that honestly. 2012 or newer free maintenance but huge hit on depreciation.

I know my jaw kind of dropped! Just doesn't include tires and obviously clutch, apparently these clutches are expected to last 75K + though so no need.

But all fluids etc. Then a factory warranty! I got all giddy haha

75k for a paddle shift or manual? 75k seems like quite a lot for any car IMO, but it all depends on the driver.

For the R-tronic (paddle shift). I picked up this one with 11K miles and 85% of clutch life remaining. At this rate of attrition theoretically it should last to 100K miles.

However as well all know theory and fact are wildly different variables.

You do understand you cannot run it down to zero? 40% min. for most E-Gear type cars.

The clutch wear % in the TCU's is an estimate. It does not mean you will still have a working cllutch when the reading hits 10%, let alone 1%. i have heard from some Scuderia owners that problems can occur with other parts if you go below 40%.

Lamborghini for example, with a new clutch wears quickly to around 80% during break in, but then slows down after that.

On an E-Gear single clutch transmission, 30k would be very good mileage, 20k is more realistic.

I my mind the choice of a R8 could only ever be made against a 911 anyway.
As they are both run if the mill cars from run of the mill manufactures, why not save a huge lump and buy a GTR Nissan then? far better bang for your buck. If your watching costs.
The 458 is is a different class.
But perhaps I am biased?

458 coupe normale, California T, Speciale A, 458 GT3, FF Maserati Ghibli diesel!
on way in 2015: La F, and 488, 2016 488 spider

Agree wholeheartedly, the other points to add is that it also depends on the driver, their driving style and finally the conditions the car is used in, such as city, freeway or back roads, as all these variables have major impact on the life of any clutch, irrespective whether it's manual or dual clutch. BTW I have known an e-gear on a Lambo to last a mere 1k miles, then again the owner used launch one too many times and paid the price for his fun!

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!

i could be wrong, but i would expect the clutch to wear out faster when it gets more worn? or maybe not...

but i have read that on a Gallardo, a clutch change/replacement runs close to $8k...hope its not the same for the R8

What's different between the pre-2012 458 and the post-458? Why is 2012 458 maintenance free for 7 years? i thought only the brakes are different? Where can I find these information?

No need for a GTR, pardon the lack of tact but I am not a 17 year old asian male. I've just always loved the body style of the R8 and the comfort level is superb. I live in Downtown LA, the streets are beyond terrible. Its nice as a daily driver and not feeling like your spine is going to shatter from the suspension.

PM- Welcome to Ferrari Life. Ferrari included 7 years of maintenance for free on all new Ferraris beginning in about Fall 2011. That information is widely posted here and elsewhere on the internet. Just google Ferrari 7 year maintenance plan.
