passenger airbag deactivation kit 05 boxster

Wondering if anyone can shed some light on this - I just purchased an 05 Boxster as left over inventory from a soCal dealer and had the passenger airbag deactivation kit installed. Had searched the web before hand to learn about the kit and found a variety of opinions, experiences, etc. And, of course, even got conflicting info from 2 different local Porsche dealers before having installed. I was under the impression that labor was included in the purchase of the kit - however, the majority of the almost $600 i paid was labor. Did I get shafted? Anyone have it buy it and have it installed in soCal and only pay for parts? Thanks.

NO! Aufmuntern means to "perk up" or "cheer up"!

All this German is giving me a headache - Speak Spanish!

It sounds a bit pricey - but then I think everything on a Porsche is a bit pricey. What does the kit entail? I'm assuming that it provides some sort of lock-out key or something more than just a program change to cover that $600.00.

Well I guess that's a pretty reasonable price then. Although I would have gone without the new seats and vents....

actually for the 05 987 the kit is simply the key switch inside the passenger side and the whatever reprogramming (in addition to a little light on the console near the parking brake that indicates the air bag is off.

Again, I hoping to find anyone else with an 05 who had the kit installed after purchasing the car and determine did they only pay for the kit (roughly $250) -labor being included in that price - or did they pay another $300 for additional labor charges.

thanks
