his disclaimer is the price point, so i guess he sits on the fence.

The trouble is, the PDK is so good, I'm still not sure which I'd have in a GTS. The essential item for me though is one you'll probably never see ordered in Australia - PCCB. Everyone says the standard brakes are fine - and they are - but the extra bite of the carbon brakes adds so much to the driving experience.

Anyway, what colour are you going for? ;)

The Boxster S is still the one to go for and just spec it up how you want it Arthur. :)

Carmine red, the launch colour for the gts looks great but is optional. Even the gts interior is optional on the gts. And I don't think you'd feel the difference in power.

Accordingly, it doesn't translate into good value when you spec up a gts here. You have to wonder how many they will sell.

Also, I seem to recall ratios for the manual being a bit tall for daily driving, I could be wrong, but if so I would choose PDK every time as 99% of my driving is not on a track or at high speeds.

You've got to hand it to Porsche - they've got a cheek sometimes. Pity the cars are so damn good. :doh:

Best to not look at other markets when buying a car here :)
