    DSG PDK GearBox

    anybody have any clues on the release date for the dsg/pdk 7 speed . My 997T build date is Januray and i really am thinking if it is only going to be shortly after to put it on hold

    Re: DSG PDK GearBox

    Asked the same question of my local OPC last week and he said the news they had from germany was that it's not coming for the 997.

    Re: DSG PDK GearBox

    H'mm My OPC was told it deff will be but they think at least Sept 2007 after the factory shutdown in August, the 7 speed will deff appear but they were guessing at My08 Cars

    Re: DSG PDK GearBox

    He said that feed back from the factory was they wanted to get it right and it isn't working right yet for the power delivery of the Turbo.
    Friend of mine has a Fezza Stradale with the Fezza paddle box and hates it on the road.

    Re: DSG PDK GearBox

    it seems that the PDK will be introduced in normal 997 MY08 cars fist, not the turbo engines

    Big difference between normal paddle shifts and a DSG type gearbox!

    I found the DSG is SO smooth when I drove an Audi TT with it a year or so ago. No jerky up or down shifts what-so-ever at any revs.

    You could be right. "PDK" has a higher priority now but since rumours indicate that the development has been "changed" because the "old" technology based solely on DSG wasn't promising enough for Porsche and high torque engines, it may take a while until they finish "PDK".

    Earliest introduction can be expected for MY 2008 but there is still a huge questionmark on that. The factory just re-opened, so maybe we should just wait for new rumours to flow in. I also doubt that the high torque engines will be the first ones to receive "PDK" but on the other hand, I heard a rumour before the factory holiday that the GT2 will be the first with "PDK". Time will tell, we just have to wait a couple of weeks until we get more information.

    From your words can I assume Christian that we will have Gt2's info at the end of September?

    Re: DSG PDK GearBox

    GT2 will be in Paris?

    Re: DSG PDK GearBox

    I am also on the waiting list and would really like PDK. My dealer tells me it's under development but doesn't know when it'll be available. Come to think of it, even if he did know, he probably wouldn't tell customers because a lot of people might just decide to wait, thus hurting current sales.

    So the upcoming PDK will not be just another variant of DSG? What kind of new feature(s) can we expect?

    All of this kinda fits with the news coming out of Audi with relation to their new platform and transmissions. I heard somewhere (Car magazine?) that their new line up will include 7 speed DSG, but only for the engines with lower torque output. Previously DSG has been for transverse mount only - the new box works with longtitudinal mount configurations, and enables the engine to be placed further back for pedestrian safety reasons (not that it matters in a P-car!!).
