    Hello, I'm new to the forum and just getting to know my new to me 997.1 turbo. I noticed my car already has a tubi style exhaust but it's dual can. I read a post that you had the same, is that correct? Any info you can share regarding them? I can't seem to find any info on them.

    Thanks much! Dennis

    Brian,

    The general consensus is that a mezger based manual TT will hold its value. Honestly no one really knows and I would not purchase a car based on expected future values or deprecition. PDK vs manual is really personal. I like 3 pedals and the engagement with the car. Im yet to experience the PDK in a turbo but the PDK-S in the GT3 was impressive. Teach the girl how to drive a manual ! As far as the next 5 years, I wish I knew but I can tell you I've received very appealing offers for my car.

    Hey Tom,

    I'm new to the Reenlist forum and I noticed you were from the bay area. I just moved to SOMA SF and I'm selling my C6 Corvette. I'm considering purchasing a 997T.1/.2 in either manual or 7speed PDK, which I'm leaning towards PDK so my girlfriend/future-wife can also drive it on occasion. I wasn't planning on spending $85-90k on my next car as I was looking for a slightly used C7 Corvette in the high 50's but the turbo has me interested. I won't be putting many miles on the car and it sounds like they're a decent investment for a sports car, which relatively low depreciation. I'm reading that the 997.1 manuals have better depreciation than the 997.2 PDK's but I really prefer to ditch the clutch. What are your thoughts on the values right now and where they'll be a year from not to even five years from now?

    Thanks,

    Brian Kotyk

    Yes I'm extremely happy with the swap. I run them with PFC pads, on track they are incredible. They do squeal a bit for street use under light braking and they pads release a lot of dust. The initial costs for the rotors is expensive but the hats are resuable with reasonably prices rings.

    Highly recommend the setup, if you're concerned about noise get an extra set of "street" pads.

    Tom,

    Are you happy with the Brembo/PCCB rotor swap? Is there any noise issue with the new rotors and pads? Thanks for your posts. I am comtemplating the same swap on my '11 997 TT.
