Does anyone know what's involved in upgrading the standard climate control to the automatic Climatronic?

Hmm... do you know which option code you have and which one you need?

573 is the automatic climate control.

This car has the standard ( non option )

M573 is Air Conditioning.

Does your car have AC?

AC is standard. 573 lets you set a temperature and the climate control keeps it ( Climatronic ).

Where the standard is is just low-high temp and fan speed.

Our Porsche mechanic is ripping apart two cars right now to find out if it's possible. Wiring diagrams were too hard to read. I thought maybe someone here has tried it.

I was hoping to get a parts list table with the difference - but if there is no option code for it then it may only be the control unit (and programming).

I'll try to have a look at the schematics too.

I'm pretty interested in this too. I went for manual air con due to the sales brochure stating you have the ability to set different temperatures for the upper and lower cabin areas. After looking long and hard and asking my local dealer, it seems this is not the case so I want to go for a climate upgrade. Loren's diagram is the correct unit for my car but doesn't climate need more than just a new control unit ?

It's not cost effective. I ended up getting a different car for my client.
