I’m about to order the NMAutomotive kit that does the same, but I think it’s only available for the PCM 3.1.  It seems to get better feedback from the 991 guys and it comes from a British seller with really good support and aftercare apparently.  
 

Worth giving them a call...

There’s a chap called Martin Hamilton on FB that contacted them, purchased and installed (CABO UK). You can email them and there is a version available for 3.0 too.

Yes your correct, they emailed me through the details of the PCM 3.0 version and they gave me an installers address in south London. Martin Hamilton did his own install but I dont fancy opening up my head unit to install the extra circuit board. Apparently it takes about 4 hours for complete install.

No not Croydon, This is the one that NM Automotive sent me, Sextons.  I spoke to one in Coulsdon and as soon as I mentioned opening up head unit it was a big NO.

Sextons are London based in Ferrier Street www.sextonslondon.co.uk contact there is Jay. They have installed a lot of our kits.

I've no idea, I haven't contacted them yet. Waiting for a bit of normality to return.

Did you order the NMA kit Nick? Have you self-installed it? Any feedback on it? 👍🏻

that said, considering the unit is £450 (with shipping) plus (i have been quoted) £500 to install it, that is a grand -vs- waiting until next year for the official Porsche one to come out....

 

https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-germancars/porsche-officially-embraces-restomod-craze/44142

 

'....the expanded rollout of digital infotainment technology to fit older models as recent as the 997, with that variant's PCCM system due for launch in 2022 in response to demand.'

 

The recent 996 PCM unit is £1300...and lets say the 997/987 one next year will be £1500, I'd rather pay that to get a high res screen and better touch control than this temporary measure. And the one next year will be an easier install, it is bound to be. 

 

I am going to wait it out!
