    I had a 981 Cayman S before my F430 & was really unsure about the 4 cylinder cars, but decided to go with an open mind. All I can say is they are very impressive. Yes, the noise could be better, but they don't exactly sound terrible....nothing like any YouTube video I've seen anyway!

    Oh, and I'm with you Mark, I thought the pdk was a cracker too.....my own car was a manual. By the way, which group were you with? We were there at 1.00.

    Sorry to differ, but when I spoke to Lucca he definitely said that the F1 was put on the road cars to make them more appealing to the ladies and those males who can only pass the "auto" car driving test

    I was there for the 3.15 group - although we got there early and had a lovely cup of tea.

    yes , I thought for that set up the pdk was the car to have - be interesting how I get on with the manual

    BTW do you have a bus pass yet
    not yet..........had a haircut mind ,.

    whoops, that's what I meant - a DSG / PDK gearbox I could just about live with.

    Mind you , my 718 Cayman has arrived at the dealership and I'm picking it up on Tuesday .....

    be interesting to see how I like the manual gearbox, someone told me its the only one they have had delivered so far .
