Just read an article in Autocar Middle East Magazine (Oct 08 issue) about the comparison test between the CS2II, R8 & GT-R. The article seems to be lifted from the UK magazine, as it is written by Steve Sutcliffe, and features RHD cars in Wales (dead giveaway!).

Anyway, whilst slamming the new PDK buttons, Steve mentions in passing (and I quote), "...and that's categorically not good enough in a car such as this, which is why Porsche is already re-designing the buttons, by all accounts, having coming in for so much criticism from journos and customers alike."

Re-designing the buttons? Can any of you guys reconfirm this? When will the re-designed interface be available? Will we be able to retro-fit that on our cars? I put in my deposit for a new CSII in July. As it is we have to wait for the PSE, now will this warrant a further wait to get our cars right?! Not a very happy bunny after reading this piece of news. :cursing:

I don't understand what the big deal is but contact your dealer. I wouldn't take what someone wrote in a car mag to be laws and cause Porsche to redesign something.

It's true......the shifter and paddles/buttons are reversed from what is natural, but after three weeks it has become second nature to pull for downshifts and push for upshifts. I'll be somewhat disappointed if Porsche *does* correct this flaw almost immediately after I purchased my PDK equipped car, but I won't lose any sleep over it.

With any luck a software upgrade of some sort would reverse the pattern. Then you would only need a new gear shift surround and you'd be fully *updated*.
