I am planning to install PSE on my 997. My dealer quote me $3.3K for this.

By looking at some of thread, it looks like they are charging me too much. :cursing:

In one thread, I read that it take shorter to install PSE on 997 than 996. 4.5 hours vs 7 hours.

Is this true? Because my dealer told me that it will require 6.5 hours of labor for this installation. :censored:

It would be great if any of you could share your experience with me. :help:

What would be the reasonale price for PSE? Should I purchase it from online shop and have it installed

in the local dealership?

Hope to hear from your expert opinion on this soon. Thank you! :lol:

Hmm... the installation TSBs from Porsche say:

996 install -- 7.5 hours

997 install -- 4.4 hours with Sports Chrono package and 3.3 hours without

Porsche's estimates are usually conservative so an experienced tech can usually do it much faster.

Check with Sunset Porsche (Porsche Parts at Dealer Cost - at the top of the page) for the best pricing and an independent Porsche shop will likely have better labor rates.

Thanks, Loren.

I really appreciate for the information.

I decided to go with other dealership in CA who has a bit better pricing than my local dealer.

It looks lke they have a little better deal than Sunset Porsche since I can't get the cost + 15% deal from Sunset because I live in WA state. Anyway, I can still save $900 + tax :D

The part should arrive by next week they said. I can't wait to hear the sound of PSE on my 997. :jump:

BTW, does anybody know any independent Porsche shop in Seattle area?
