Richard_HamiltonAccording to my copy of PET, part number 997.618.603.05 has been superceeded by 997.618.603.07, and is £2785 inc VAT. 997.618.601.05 has been superceeded by 997.618.601.06, and is £1972 inc VATIf your car is 2007, then I think you need 997.618.601.06. A call to an OPC parts department would confirm the number and price. There is a new one on eBay here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232370418560 by the way.It sounds to me like your indy hasn't done their homework on pricing a new one. Sure, it will need fitting, coding and programming, but £4000 semms OTT to me. Is the car driveable? If not, you probably don't have many choices, but if it is then I would be tempted to take it elsewhere.As Richard says, the most economical way would be to get the DME looked at by someone like Cartech or BBA Reman (http://www.bba-reman.com/gb/index.aspx). Failing that, irb26's suggestion is also a good option.
FluffyOwlI hope everyone got out over the weekend to enjoy the weather! Huge thanks to everyone who contributed last week. As you can imagine, having only enjoyed the car for just over 6 weeks, I was very anxious. The ECU/DME is being picked up today and delivered to Cartech tomorrow. Hopefully, all being well, I'll have the car back on the road early next week. The most disappointing thing for me is the lack of focus from the local Porsche 'specialist'. They collected the car last Monday, heard zip from anyone for three days, and the only person I spoke to after that was the receptionist. My perception of a specialist is a bunch of enthusiasts who get to work on Porsches all day...hmmm..haha. I'll keep you posted.
