Installation of latest PCM (w/nav) into '07?

Have found a possible great deal on an early 987 ('07) but it doesn't have PCM, does anyone know if it can be installed by a Porsche dealer? Including nav?

What was "lost" from the 986?

I'm aware of the various changes (improvements?) made when the 987 model came out.

But for those that moved from 986 to 987, is there anything that you feel was "lost"? Something in the way the...
