If anyone's interested, I've just picked up a PC3K8 which had it installed - ironically just after my Kore64 board arrived from Thomann - so I've been having a bit of a peruse of the extra sounds. Current thoughts :
* Drums - good, nice realistic and the previous owner loved them. Not sure if I'll use them, but handy to have
* Guitars - some interesting crunchy patches here and, again, good but I have access to guitars / guitarists
* Brass - er ... yeah ... sound very good to me ... but I'm not a fan of sampled brass .. ho hum
* Synth waveforms - extra ones are always nice (they use a SEM wave a lot and it's a good raw sound to play with) and more from the K series make it closer to the K series which is a good thing (still not sure if I can load Grand Strings yet though )
The bit that I really do like, is the extra 'ambient' textural type patches - something I felt that the PC3 was missing compared to the K26xx series. A few more ripping lead sounds (might have to do those meself) and it will be a really good workstation.
I mainly have use my PC3 as a nice all round gigging unit - loads of piano, EP, organ,etc. With this new version, I've still got that but also got a decent studio synth as well. The Kore64 hasn't made it a new machine, but it adds some nice touches. Works for me..

That said, I am just looking now at picking up a cheap rack synth to add a few more 'synthy pads' to my live set and from what you mention the Kore expansion might tick the box. I agree that the standard PC3 is a little lacking on the synths pad front. (Nothing to stop me programming my own though!!!)
