Yeah I'm taking it to a very reputable Porsche mechanic tomorrow. So we'll see what he says about this BS. Because it's really some BS. Not even a code, warning light... Nothing...

Ok got to ask, has it rained or humid lately, are we sure it’s not just stuck pads?

No bud. No rain nor much humidity.
Wheels have some play. Like when you rock it while in park, without e brake on.
So It's probably not pads. I also think that it would budge a little while accelerating or pushing if the pads were stuck

Dealer will charge you $600 or more for PDK fluid change. You cando it in a fraction of the cost. I posted DIY for it. Read to see if you feel up to it. Yeah. PDK and PDCC fluids are very very finicky and should be changed per intervals in maintenance schedule (which I also posted thread on, to give all info on when to do what). Hope this gets resolved, make sure you come back to tell us your solution. Will be very useful if someone else experiences this. Thank you.

The cable itself was around $150. The salty part was the 4 hours of labor... But hey. I'm so thankful it wasn't anything serious with the transmission, and I got it done the same day. So I'm happy.

And kudos Deezflip for the PDK reset suggestion!!!
Man. The previous owner must have been a real slug behind the wheel(good thing though :P ). The gear and throttle response improved big time after the reset.
