Is this a manual or pdk?

Porsche Mechanic: porscheguru, Porsche technician replied 2 years ago

I also would like to know the specifics of when it is difficult to engage reverse gear. Can you tell me the following before we proceed.

Transmission type PDK or manual: (I am asuming this is manual)

Mileage:

​Is there a specific outside temperature that this happens at? Does it happen more during cold mornings or does it happen just out of the blue? You run into a store, engine and gearbox are warm, you come out 20 minutes later and it happens?

Any additional input can help me help you, thanks. I am here when you return. My time is GMT -5.
