Thanks for the advice.

Will stop by at the dealership today and see if they can activate it. If not, I will look into getting an original one.

Will it work if I get an "ebay" OBDII cable and download the official version of Durametric 6?

Or I need an official package?



You really don't want to go this route for two reasons:  First, you are buying an illegal clone of the only aftermarket software system that supports Porsche owners.  Secondly, along with potential harm the unknown system can cause, at best it is at best an old and extremely out of date version of the Durametric software, which cannot be updated as doing so will brick the cable ( a little trick that Durametric built in to foil the rip off artists that try to steal their system).

Hi everyone, I have a 2015 Macan Turbo, and I'm trying to figure out how to become a supporting member so that I can access PIWIS??? Can anyone help me figure this out please? Thanks in advance.


Welcome to RennTech :welcomeani:

You become a contributing member by donation (see the "donate" icon at the top of the screen).


Becoming a member does not give you access to a PIWIS system, which is the factory diagnostics tool.  To acquire a PIWIS system, you need to directly contact Porsche and be ready to pay the first year's lease costs of around $20,000.
