Default Could PDK be swapped into touring?

I currently have a winged PDK and I have a Touring coming in April. Iike most I really wanted a manual but I have fell in love with the PDK. I was on the "list" but I didn't think I would get a car so I bought an available car. I ended up getting the last allocation at my local dealer. Now my ultimate vehicle would be a PDK touring. Does anyone know if the swap would be difficult?

Just remove the wing and put a flat lid on the winged car

Can you get a Carrera with a 500 horse power naturally aspirated engine and gt3 race suspension? Didn't see it in the configurator??

That was my first idea I called a couple wrecking yards but no luck yet. It would be the easiest. Also the touring would sell for much more money so that is my plan A. If anyone has a standard rear deck lid I would to to buy it.

Sure, if you have both cars. Will probably take a significant hit on resell and void warranty. But anything is possible. Just depends on how much money you throw at it...

I would imagine you could by an OEM Touring rear deck lid but you would also have to swap out the wiring harness if you want the rear deployable spoiler to actually go up.

Most likely it's easier to just add a touring decklid

no you get 50 less hp and a similer suspension and and the financial hit to get one will be a lot less than converting a winged pdk to touring.

I believe the intake ducting is different between the winged and Touring GT3s beneath the decklid ó two intake ducts vs a single centered one respectively. The intake boxes and filters themselves are also different.

Exactly. They are both a GT3, one just doesnít have a wing. Itís bizarre how people talk about these as separate models.

You should be able to put a Tiptronic in the Touring.
