I posed this in another PDK-related thread: I would highly recommend researching the discussions on Porsche-related forums such as P9, rennlist, and 6speedonline to supplant any responses here. The PDK's only been around for about a decade, and this forum's been around for barely a year. You'll find much more discussion there that could inform the question you're asking here.Many of you know I'm eagerly awaiting the official announcement for the presumed next generation GT4. I love manual transmissions (don't have anything against PDK) but I have to admit, I'm a little concerned about "3rd gear failures". I first heard of this with the previous generation GT4 and now in select 718 manual transmissions. Do our members think or know if the PDK is a more robust set up for long term ownership. As much as I'm craving a manual GT4, if PDK is offered, would it be a "better" choice for the reasons/concerns expressed, (NOT from a performance standpoint)...obviously if a manual is the only choice...I have no choice....Thanks?
