One of my PCA buddies has a 996 Turbo X-51 and he drove last year's turbo with the PDK and was really quite smitten with it, almost to the point of giving up his current wonderful ride. I've purposefully avoided driving one so as to maintain my meager bank account!

If I were interested in drag times or lap times, I'd definitely be impressed with PDK. I'm driving my sports cars for the enjoyment of driving. To me that requires three pedals.

I've driven Ferrari's F1 transmission and once the novelty of the paddles wears off, you're driving an automatic. No thanks.
