Not been on this site for years - just got back to Porsche ownership - 2011 Boxster S.

 

Only done a few miles so far, but it looks and sounds great, especially compared with my diesel main car.

 

The original owner ordered lots of options, but not everything I would prefer.  So, I need to know if it's possible / easy / expensive to fit the following:

 

1) Ability to disable / enable the passenger airbag so a child seat can be fitted from time-to-time.  Is it possible to fit an aftermarket switch?

 

2) The car has PCM 3 (with extended nav) but no bluetooth, aux or usb.  Is there a way to upgrade PCM 3 or is it best to have an after market system fitted?  (Odd that these were options when the actual components cost a few pence!)

 

Thanks for your suggestions

1)  Porsche sells a kit to do this, and it requires recoding the car (PIWIS, etc.) to activate it once installed: http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/DEACT.html  I am not aware of an aftermarket kit as it would still need to be coded to the car when installed.

 

I'll leave the PCM 3 question to those that have done it.
