Who has PCM ???
One of the reasons I ordered my car was to Get PCM so I ordered an 03 black/black and added PCM, Digital Sound, Heated Seats, Xenon Lights, Windstop.

Also got a FREE hardtop - yes free - from Porsche NA because my stereo died the 2nd day I had the car and the Nav was buggy.

ANyway I never see PCM on the dealer lots in Boxsters so I thought I would ask if anyone else has it ????

Do you like it? I am thinking of getting it on Ebay to go into my 04. How much do you think it would it cost for the labor?

ckreling 04-22-2005 07:16 AM

Love it
I love it - it integrates everything and has a much more sophistaicated radio tuner and trip computer.

No idea for labor - can it be installed easily if it was not equipped that way. How much are they going for on ebay ?

Buy it now $1,500. Not bad

ckreling 06-29-2005 05:15 PM

I think so
I think so... do a google on pcm retrofit boxster and some stuff comes up. Not sure if anyone has ever done it.

Well this is my first post on this board. I have been lurking here for a while because I am considering buying a Boxster in the near future. OK now to add to this thread.


I found this the other day while browsing other websites and forums.
This is a detailed, with pictures, install of the PCM in a non factory PCM car.

Doesn't look like its that hard.

Peter Joyce, if you decide to do this, let us know if the website I posted helps.

ckreling, one of the things that I will be looking for, is a car with the PCM in it.
I hear its pretty rare, but my current car doesn't have it. Most of the guys I know
with the same car, 01 Acura 3.2 CL Type S, have it. I dont know what I was
thinking when I DIDN'T get it. My next car will have it.
:dance: my first post!!!

Install Link is for PCM I
Just be advised that the instructions are for the PCM I unit that has a built in tape drive and needs an external CD drive for the maps.

The PCM II uses the internal CD drive for both Maps & Music CDs and has the ability to show maps even when playing a music CD.

Cables and others stuff I am sure are different.

These are my opinions only from having a 2003 Boxster with PCM II and I know it uses the lastest data bus and fiber optics.

Dealer Comments....
Not sure why so many Boxsters on the lots never have PCM. Will there bne more with PCM with the new 2005 model.

Basically I would like to hear dealer comments if any of you lurk on these boards....
