PCM retrofit

I bought a nice 2008 Boxster 10 days ago, I love it. Almost all the features I wanted, very low mileage, CPO giving me about 3 years of warranty, I am really happy with it.

There are 3 interrelated shortcomings, I wonder if I could solve them with one change: The radio (basic) is terrible, the car has no bluetooth, and it has no Nav. I do not care so much about Nav, my other cars have Nav if I really need it, and also I have a updated and nice Garmin, and I have a tiny bluetooth mike/speaker, but the addition of a PCM might make the car nicer, so I have a few questions:

1. I think that the 2008 Boxster uses PCM 2.1, is that correct?
2. Is the radio in the PCM decent?
3. Does the PCM include bluetooth?
4. How hard is the installation?

I see a PCM 2.1 for sale on ebay from LA dismantler, not a fortune (just over $1k), I would buy it to get a good radio, built in bluetooth, not to mention GPS....
but I need to know more.
