Would be great to hear how it goes - assume google maps etc are via bluetooth.  Being quoted £500 for the rear kit & fitting, plus the cost of main unit, as I have BOSE pack already...so definitely not putting this through the household account..

Fitted it today, was pretty straightforward. Well it was once I found out that you didn't use the mounting cage that came with the radio.

 

I van play bluetooth music etc (sounds app ftom the BBC, or via Radio app which streams pretty much any radio station.

 

You need to connect your iphone with a cable as normal for apple car play that then works reall well.

 

Makes a lot of difference to to dash appearance and the sound is pretty good as well, with various options to suit your ears.

I've had the R for two weeks now 

 

It really is a cracking road car. Lots of little mods you can't appreciate until you own one.

 

I've sorted the PSE always On mod....10min job

How did you do the PSE always on mod - pull the plug off the solenoid in the engine bay?

I had a feeling a combination of joining this group & being on furlough was likely to be expensive....new ICE installed last week (proper satnav & sound); car currently at garage just having had GT exhaust fitted.  I get to pick it up Friday.....

Great work!  Did you go with a new CR exhaust, I remember when I had mine done Gert sourced a new pair from Porsche and converted those, due to the different size.

No, I went for the swap, which was just under E500, plus £30 shipping my one back to him (goes next week), and fitting from the local Porsche independent.  He had one with around 30k miles on, which matched my car history.
