2007 Boxster Shifting to First


Vehicle Information: Model (Boxster, Boxster S,Cayman, Cayman S): Boxster; Year: 2007; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock; Total Mileage: 10550; Transmission: Manual;

Occasionally when in traffic, while still rolling at a mph too slow to continue in second, the transmission is hard to shift to first. I don't want to completely stop, so I end up either double clutching or shifting from second to neutral, moving the shifter left and right and then shifting to first. I have not forced the shifter. I asking the dealer about this and was told this is common. I either have to continue to do what I have been doing or increase engine revs as I try to shift to first. Although this is my first Porsche, I have had many other many trans including a Mini S with a Getrag trans, and never experienced this issue. It is not a major problem, but I would like to know if this is common or if something is wrong or out of adjustment on my car. Thanks.
