Agree, it should be easy to have it disabled with a switch. I almost never use it either but among all the gadgets, I don't mind its presence

I think the big news here is the engine and MT, you essentially getting an R with a wing for a big discount. Wing delete not an option apparently to keep R owners happy.

I am so split... on one hand PDK is much better for holding your cappuccino, but on the other hand 6MT will get more cool guy nods at C&C. Maybe I should buy 2? Will need to buy a double trailer though. Can't trailer both Gt3's to C&C.

I think you will be disappointed to see that the 997 gt3 will continue to hold its value and go up. The 997 vs. 991 argument is so much more than the transmission.

Yup. No different than saying that the aircooled cars are going to tank now that the GT3 is coming in stick again.
