  1. Thanks for all your comments. My budget has a clear cut off line, so I'll go for the Tip vs. a PDK 4S. PDK on paper sounds awesome, but I didn't notice the difference in street driving, and I'll be street driving 95% of the time.
  2. Thanks, I just test drove both cars. And have to say that for regular street driving the difference between Tiptronic and PDK is for my untamed feet/hands not noticeable. The only big difference is the buttons on the steering wheel are a little chunkier on the 4S than the TT. As for missing the manual gear box, I think I'd rather have two hands on the steering wheel with this car. The 4S actually sounded nicer because the one I tried had the sports exhaust package, and what a wonderful sound! But all said and done you could notice a sizeable difference in power when you flawed the beasts.
  3. Guys, just a simple question for you. I have the money to go for a 2009 911 Turbo, or a 2010 Carrera 4S. Both are lovely cars. The question is which one should I go for? The Turbo is a Tiptronic: am I swearing in church if I go for a Tiptronic Turbo? Am I giving up too much power if I go for a 4S? I've read so many reviews about the PDK being awesome, that I'm starting to fear my $10k deposit on the Turbo is an expensive lesson. Does anyone have experience of driving a Turbo tiptronic? It looks like the only way to manually control the gear shifting is via fiddly little buttons on the steering wheel, is that correct? Thanks, Ted
