Can anyone with a 958 Turbo comment on what I'm experiencing with my gearbox and if normal or not....
I've found the 8 speed box to be lovely and smooth with changes when getting up to speed but low down speed and in sport mode it is very "bouncy" and in London traffic, the start stop is always "clonky"
Is this normal as I've been told it may need a software upgrade by another 958 Turbo owner

Cheers for any help and advice....

agree, with that in traffic, sport model can be like what you've described as it's running typically a gear lower or 2 gears lower in Sport Plus

I do prefer the more precise throttle response from sport but in traffic it's not the right mode for comfort

Stop Start, shouldnt have too many issues with this, normally quite smooth

They keep promising the PDK for the Cayenne but it just can't handle towing, so they stick with the good old 'tip' slushbox.

One day though...

Exactly what I asked and what they said RP... the PDK in my Turbo was far superior although I had a solenoid fault which cost 1k to put right... after that a great box... the 7 speed Merc box in my daily is utter shxt... it's gearbox month for me as I'm awaiting an electtroplate for that which is made for the car/VIN... so a few weeks wait....
