    Whats everyones thoughts on tiptronics? How well do they shift? How does it compare to AMG auto/bmw SMG/ Ferrari or Maserati F1?

    Re: Tiptronics

    Tiptronic is just an automatic transmission with a brain with shift buttons on the wheel for "manual" use...period. However they are a lot of fun and in a Turbo, the performance stats are really comparable.

    Don't know about the other cars

    Re: Tiptronics


    I read someplace that people like tips on x50 turbos because the 1-2 shift is so quick that its easier to shift it in the tip. anyone know if there is any truth to that?

    Ordinary automatic transmission, not even as refined as the AMG Speedshift.
    The Turbo version is made by Mercedes but as far as I heard, the Tiptronic of the 996 facelift too now.

    No way to compare Tiptronic to the Ferrari F1 shifting system or BMW's SMG.

    Re: Tiptronics

    Do you think porsche will adopt the double clutch paddle shift that Audi is starting to use in the future? So far everyone says its the best paddle shifting system. Would be awesome to have porsche use it.

    Re: Tiptronics

    There was a recent article in Pano about this. They interviewed one of the PAG honchos and asked this question. Of course, the first part of the answer was to point out that Porsche actually developed the twin clutch many years ago and used it successfully on the 962 race cars. The second part of the answer was non-commital but he made it clear that if Porsche did implement a twin clutch system it wouldn't be the Audi design or components.

    i had a tip TT before a stick and now gt2's... tip is great for stomping on off red lights which i won't do in a stick. and in real use they drive fast as stick, comparing them side by side on my roads which are mostly 2,3,4 gear mountains.
