Cluster beeping in reverse? I'm going to feel like an idiot for asking but I have to know...I thought it beeps if you have PDC?

Torque converter for smg2??? I thought smg2 uses the same tranny as the regular manual thus no need for a torque converter?

the tranny is the same. The clutch and shifter is comp. operated. I've experienced this beeping as well. I'll do some research and get back to you.

I was pretty sure the tranny's the same but why is there a TSB for a torque converter if this's a manual tranny?

Just dropped off the car at the $tealership for the 1200 miles thingy & they told me of a light control module recall they have to perform. Mine's a June 03' build if it helps.
