991 2011 PDK or 7-speed decision

I'm on the market to buy a 2010 or 2011 but likely the newer 991 platform.
I spend about 50% of time in traffic but love my others drives and 2-3 times per summer on the traffic lapping.

Question: Will I regret PDK ?

I borrowed a buddy's 997 TT for a weekend with PDK and it really got me thinking but then again its a TT so hard not to dislike the thrust under any circumstance.

I prefer the manual transmission for sure, only you can make that decision. Good luck

I went from a Boxster S with 6 speed manual to 991 S cab with pdk. Never could master heel and toe in the Boxster like I could in my 968. I think it was the throttle by wire that had some sort of random delay.
Anyway I haven't missed shifting a bit. I do use the button shifters most of the time. But if I'm eating a Big Mac or something it's nice to have the car in auto mode.

once you drive the PDK .. shifting a manual is slow and bothersome..
PDK all the way ..
its faster and makes the engine s sound sooo good on the downshifts and up-shift song
