  1. Well, bad news good news. I called Porsche who told me to speak to the Service manager before picking up my car. Didn't hear back from him until I called the service tech asking more questions abotu versions, etc. He told me that in addition to the car being out of warranty, I had a third-party bluetooth device (Tooki) that probably caused the problem, and compared that to reprogramming the ECU. He told me that Porsche sometimes makes exceptions and would discount repairs in cases like this, which I didn't take too seriously - I mean, 50% off of $4600 is still more than one of the Pioneer
