  1. Thanks Loren. I did wonder if that would be the case. I'll get the part number off mine and I'll put my order in with OPC for the turbo version.
  2. Alex, it’s been a while now but how did you find the retrofit? When I test drove my 2007 Turbo it had the standard shift and I found although pleasant was a bit long, as you say. In doing the deal on the purchase I got the short shift thrown in. Bearing in mind that I also drive a GT2, the shift of which I can only describe as like a rifle bolt (which I actually like) and the clutch like a machine weight in the gym, I found the new short shift on my Turbo light, smooth, very precise but still a very distinct shift – your “click – click” analogy rings true to me – to me it’s an incredibly satisfying shift. It transformed the car and I would certainly spec/retrofit this option should I change my car in the future. Changing down to first can be a bit challenging in the cold when rolling but I think that was the same for the standard shift and certainly in most other performance cars I have driven. I very much doubt anyone would regret fitting this option, at the right price.
  3. Hi all, This is my first post, so hello and thank you for reading! I've been looking for some time and have finally found and bought my ideal 997.1 Turbo; I picked it up from OPC Silverstone, £20k miles and one owner, ticked all the drivers options I was hoping for and most of the cosmetics too and I'm very happy with it! Along with the owners manuals it came with a fold out getting started/quick start reference booklet which summarises all the controls etc. which is quite nice. Anyway, the reason I'm posting this is that my 997 GT2 doesn't have this booklet and I was thinking it would be a nice thing to have for it. I've been to OPC and they've been unable to find the booklet on the parts system; does anyone know if Porsche printed/supplied this book for the GT2 and if so does anyone know what the part number is? Many thanks Faye
