Transmission mileages before overhaul depend almost entirely on type of
motoring.  Short journeys with traffic can kill them in well under 100,000
miles, just like brakes, clutches and engines.  My previous Type 3 needed a
MT gearbox change at about 70,000 miles with no abuse - shaft bearings got
very noisy and the shift was imprecise, though it didn't actually stop
working.
