Has anyone in the UK ordered their Boxster with a manual ? PDK maybe a great gearbox but i would want the manual every time.I'm not based in UK (not sure if/why that is important), but I have ordered an 981S with manual. Test-drove both PDK and manual. Had a Golf V GTI with DSG, which was fantastic, but after a while the novelty wore off. Opted for manual purely for more involvement, even though I know I will be slower (than PDK). But hell, I'm buying it for driving enjoyment, not to set fastest laps at the 'Ring.
I did have an "S" PDK test drive for an afternoon, and although it probably makes sense if you drive mainly in an urban area, the lack of real involvement was not for me, and I have to say the manual box is quite superb. Also, the partial leather is perfectly satisfactory and I saw no point in the extra cost of full leather.

Alcantara, which is always my comfort preference.So, are they the standard sets? I am tired of full leather seats and fancy saving myself £700 odd quid on leather seats too!
