993 with tip

Any downside to a 1995 993 with tip? Is there anything to watch out for when purchasing a tiptronic?

What? A bunch of views and no replies? Is the question too vague? I just want to know if the auto tranny in a 993 is robust? You know, like the 915 tranny in an SC, you have to take the shift from 1st to 2nd kinda slow. Sometimes, if your shifter bushings are shot, you may have to double-clutch. That's the sort of advice I was looking for regarding tip tranny. Either no one here has a 993 tip or tips are tops.

C'mon, show some love my way.

The general concensus seems to be that the tips are pretty much bulletproof. Just the normal fluid and filter change. Rarely are any problems posted. Is the '95 a 5 speed?

Do you mean is it a 5 speed automatic? If that's the stock tranny, then it is. Thanks for the reply. Will probably do a PPI on the car.

Yes, I meant 5-speed automatic. The 964's were 4-speed. I just wasn't sure when they changed. If you research it you will find it to be a pretty sophisticated tranny. Even the older one's did things like downshift with the gas pedal, and map different shifting patterns.

993 tip are Four forward gears and one reverse (does that make it a 5 speed? = i think not).

I have one. Bullet proof and you can't over rev the engine with a tip!

I like it (heavy traffic in LA area is a pain).

I've autoX-d a few times. I have the TIP S (steering wheel controls) and it's easy to deal with. Not that I've done many miles with it (had it a year now).

The very early 993's with TIP's have a somewhat disconcerting "klunk" if you drop it into first above about 10mph... but you get used to it. Can be updated to remove the "klunk", but budget about $3500 to do it! Not really much of a worry.

Did I say I like mine... check it out... I'm sure you'll like it.

Clive.
