For many years I've owned manual transmission Porsches along with manual, automatic, and dual-clutch BMW's. I currently have several BMW's including an E92 M3 which upshifts by pulling the shift lever toward the back of the car. I am trained in the BMW way. On my new 991, my first PDK car, the shift lever pushes forward to upshift the car. I have subconsciously pulled the PDK shifter back into the next lower gear more times than I can count while trying to upshift. If I'm focused on the Porsche method, I'm OK. If I'm just casually driving the car, I'll pull instead of pushing without thinking. Plus, as I switch back and forth between the 991 and the M3, it's causing me great brain-drain.

Does anyone know if there is a way to reverse the way Porsche does this? Maybe exchange two wires or something like that? I can't imagine that this shifter is connected to the tranny through any type of hard connection.

Any thoughts or direction are very welcome.
