Rob do you mean in your 996 - cause you posted in the 997-1 section?

Hi Loren :)

I mean in a 997, MY09 ( should've posted in 997-2? Just noticed that ).

I'm a Porsche sales consultant now ( http://www.rogerjobs.com/ ) and my service manager isn't sure if it's an OEM retrofit or not. Figured this was the place to get an answer.

If you don't have PCM 3.0 then the old one for the 997-1 might work.


If you do have PCM 3.0 then I think it is a new ball game.

I just purchased a 997.2 this month. Parts & service guys at dealership say the cars are prewired for XM retrofit, just a matter of time before it is released. Just like the new Bluetooth retrofit.

How much time is the question...I waiting myself.

This has been done to a PCM3 equipped Cayenne. The entire PCM unit is different for cars equipped with XM and those without. The retrofit on the Cayenne involved a new PCM and installing a new wireharness to the rear spoiler where the XM/GPS combo antenna is located. Then PAG has to supply an activation code which has to be programmed with the PIWIS tester. I would doubt that the 997s are prewired for XM because the Cayennes most definitely are not.
