    Soundcheck 997 PDK

    Ok, it is in german, but go down on that site to "soundcheck" and click 0-200 and you hear the pdk working Soundcheck 997 PDK

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    Holy Moly..., I'm not in a particularly negative subjective mood today BUT my SMG-equipped M3 _seems_ to shift much sharper (in a good way) and _faster_.


    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    definately, but lets face it. as great as PDK might be, it substitutes the auto transmission and not the sportier stick shift..

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    Those ultra-smooth seamless shifts are the hallmark of a proper PDK.

    I would not expect any jerkiness or discontinuity in the shift a la SMG.

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    It sounds different !!!!! , specially when starting the engine, and those accelerations from standstill, its probably a more "fat" sound????...

    Is this a Carrera or Carrera S???? , I suspect this is a Carrera (NOT S version)

    PDK is nice !!!

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    Is it me or i keep hearing the typical diesel engine like clatter sound in the first audio? Perhaps due to the new direct injection?

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    on my way back home from work just now i had a test driver in a carrera S with PDK next to me. when he looked over i gave hime the sign to use the paddels which he did right away. i drove alongside him for a few minutes and all he did was to shift down 2 gears, accelerate full power and then break the car down with downshifts again. It really gave me a very good impression about how quick the PDK really is!!
    also the automated throttle pushes during downshifts were very noticeable...
    he had a constant smile on his face and behaved like he was playing playstation...

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    Doesn't sound "crisp" to me. Sounds like an automatic. Of course we're just talking about sound of a crummy digital representation.

    Will be great to see the car-mag reviews!!!

    Whatever people say, no one can stop progress. The future is here, the future is PDK

    Sounds good to me. My M3 SMG is not "less enjoyable and less involving" by any means.

    Guess what you get do with the extra balance and extra mental energy gained by not having to sling arm and legs?



    BTW, didn't the Model A Ford have the "advanced" technology of a manual gearbox ? That and the rag top with steel frame showing thru?

    Hummmm...., can't they do something to smooth out that steel frame? With SMG and PDK they certainly _finally_ did something to smooth out the manual gearbox!

    Exactly. The same happened with brakes (from rim brakes, lever control, hydraulic control, drums, disks and ceramic/carbon) and many other components. Man is a nostalgic (and at its core conservative) animal and is adverse to change.

    Re: Soundcheck 997 PDK

    What are the beep-tones in the middle of "Testrunde?"

    "Cabriodach offnen" reminds me a bit of Pink Floyd's "Welcom to the Machine"

    Can't wait to drive this.
