Wow, amazing how many 3.8 owners (80%)!! I guess it means nearly that many are tracking their cars regularly? Otherwise does it make sense to have THAT many as a % of total? Perhaps "S" should be the new base model?

I guess if for street use, 18 inch wheels and base profile tires are a better ride (as with non-pasm suspension), base braking power is already more than can use, and the power is already more than can use. So I guess in order to target the market of people who rarely track the cars they need to keep that base model around, even if it is the vast minority? Or perhaps it is all about marketing. Very interesting. Question

Pxed my 997C2S Gen 1 manual for a 997C2 Gen 2 PDK on Tuesday. The 3.6 gen 2 seems a fair bit quicker than the 3.8 gen 1. I'm guessing its down to the pdk selecting the correct gear for you when you drive enthusiastically.

I've got a few extras..., sports plus, lowered+diff lock, 19" black wheels, PSE....

All in all it has a far more modern feel to it and its a bit quieter even though they both have PSE.

Very pleased with it so far Smile
