I just found some information from a Porsche install manual that makes me think it's possible to add a Sport Plus button to a car without the Sport Chrono package. Has anyone else explored this? My SA said we can poke around the PIWIS computer when I'm there next and see if it's possible. If a PSE button can be added, why not a Sport Plus button! :)

My intelligence tells me you should be able to navigate in the PIWIS to:

Select Air Conditioning in the control overview unit, press F12.
Then select 2-zone Air Conditioning control unit. Switch to Codings/adaptations menu and press F12.
Then select Customer-specific settings in the coding/adaptations menu. Press F12.
Then select the coding value Keypad Assignment. Press F12.
Then set the first coding value of Keypad Assignment Left to the value Not Assigned. Select Sport Plus in the drop-down menu. Press F8 to continue.
Then the message "Coding has been written successfully" is displayed.

I know you can buy the Sport Plus programming for the Panamera from Suncoast, so I would think it is possible on the 981 as well.

I am definitely interested in this...
I have already retofited the sport suspension with spacers, the Porsche Sport Exhaust, and if I could get this upgrade - that would get me over the hump of getting a car "off the lot"...
Porsche (or at least Suncoast) is getting smart with offering these software packages, suspensions, etc. where at one time - they left it to the aftermarket suppliers...there is something about getting it from the factory, etc.

We're expecting to see a retrofit, no word yet. We're also working on 991 GT2 seats, factory tinted tail lights, GT3 PDK shift console, and GT3 style mirrors. Stay tuned! :)
Out if curiosity, how much is the Sport Plus retrofit for the Panamera as I'm guessing the 981 should be similar in pricing. And how soon are you expecting the retrofit package in for the 981?

Not a bad price considering how much the aftermarket sells their software for...

I would be interested in this as well. I would be curious to see if we could add the g gauge too? Also for those retrofitting the pse where are you sourcing your parts?

I just had my 981 Boxster retrofitted with the PSE - I had it done at the dealer that I purchased the car from - one caveat - they wanted to charge me over $800 more for the PSE itself...prior to getting it done I spoke to both the parts manager and the service manager and took in a print out of Suncoast's website ad for the PSE for $2,050 (+$50 for shipping) and asked them to match the price...with a few cringing faces later them stated they would match it...BTW - make sure that they understand that the console part is INCLUDED in that price (it is stated in the Suncoast ad) - they wanted to charge me an additional $344 more...also they need to order it at the same time as the PSE - it in NOT included with the PSE - a separate part all together....the total came to $2,950 for parts and labor (I had my own tips from Fabspeed that were used)...not too bad since the price from the factory is $2,825 without tips...
it seems that Suncoast is extremely aggressive with putting these packages together (purchased the Sport Suspension from them also - again a package that is put together from them exclusively) and the dealers are not happy in having to deal with them...

Hmm I guess the question I have is with MT does this mean auto rev matching? And if there is a new harness..how much crazy re wiring and removal of trim work?

It wouldn't be a problem - if you read the entire ad it is to be installed by a dealer...too much computer related work - you need to give them your VIN number, the information goes back to Germany, etc. and BTW - that console comes right up and all those buttons can be taken in and out...

Oh I see. Missed the bottom dealer note. I've done front and center console work on my 986 before but I always worry about scuffing or damage from taking things apart. Cool tho. If it comes out for 981 will have to think about it.
