Also interested - can someone PM me the code and how to do it through the PCM?
Usually a feature has a unique one time use product code. It will not work directly in a PIWIS. A person with a Porsche Network account has to enter the code and your car's VIN and it deactivates the product code from further use and generates and archives a new vehicle-specific code that does work with a PIWIS to enable that function in your car.

So, likely the 'internet' source will need you VIN and your money. There are drawbacks that I describe https://www.planet-9.com/981-chat/2...ort-only-setting-post2124309.html#post2124309.

Now, I have heard, but never seen, that there are codes meant for racing that work regardless of VIN.

Agreed. I would not trust a code from the 'internet' and inserting it into the system of a $60k+ car. Seems a little short sighted. Is the feature really worth that to people?? And I've NEVER heard of activating any kind of code via PCM.
