Jimbo is that a totty detector you have fitted . finally a use for the thing Grin Grin Grin


Mate - If I had invented a functioning totty detector I'd be tooling round in a 918 not a 987 Thumb

Getting back to the original question.

You don't need it. It will help with value when you sell though. But then you're looking at a Tiptronic, so if resale was a concern you should be looking at a manual only.

Mine has it, but I rarely use it. Mine is a Manual C2S Cabrio gen 1 2007. If you turn PASM on, its awful on 80% of UK roads as they just aren't smooth enough. So, no, not a deal breaker.

You can retro fit it to a Gen 2 car easily, but as you said Tiptronic you are only looking at Gen 1?

Buy the car on condition, not on options, unless its something you can't live with, like a red interior for me!!!!

For me, most important options were heated seats (happy wife), PSE, Manual, C2S. Did happen to end up with a stupidly high spec car though. Only thing it doesn't have is Bose, which is also a bit of a waste of time.....

Manual cars are less common so they command a premium that many are prepared to pay.

All this means is that Tiptronic cars are cheaper to buy than comparable manual cars. You pay less for a Tiptronic than a manual and then sell it for less than a manual.

There will always be a healthy market for Tiptronic cars so resale values of them are not an issue.

On the (7) era there was no Sport Plus or the like, so ignore that chat as well. I personally think the tightning up of the throttle is a must, although you can retrofit an aftermarket box that does that for you. Presume that works with Tip and Manual.
