New Porsche PCCM

Just ordered the new Porsche PCCM plus system and the European software from Porsche Mid Sussex. The total cost including fitting is £1800. Has anybody had it fitted to their 997 yet. If so how long did the fitting take( do I wait for it to be fitted or leave the car with them) and how are you enjoying it?
Just a bit more info. My car is a 2006 Turbo. The garage is fully booked next week but then I cannot make it until 13 Feb. In discussions today they had the units but no more information than the press release. I asked if the Bose sound system in the car will be altered, whether the existing controls on the sheering wheel will work, the location of the microphone ( my existing parrot bluetooth system has the mic by the rear view mirror), where the music memory stick can go (the current Dension gateway 500 USB connector is in the passenger well), will the chrono still opperate, where the DAB antenna is located and how to connect my i-phone ( currently a connection in the glove compartment if notusing bluetooth).
When fitted I will of course give feedback.

Some information on the system in this thread (eg yes the steering wheel controls will still work, no change to BOSE etc)

Also a good thread here on 911UK, showing install pictures etc

In terms of install time then it’s not a five minute job……. from what I’ve read it’s 4 to 5 hours so it’ll quickly become a full day and so not sure that’s a “wait” job !
 
Let us know how you get on and feedback on the system

Not aware of one. They reduced the cost I believe because other garages are quoting cost plus installation of around £1800.

I rang the garage and they said around 2 hours. However, I will leave the car with them since I don't want a rushed job. When fitted I will give feedback on the fitting and my initial usage as quickly as possible.

Just an update. After reading as much info as I could find on the internet I went back to the garage to talk to the engineer and have a look at the New PCCM unit. Although he has already fitted a single unit, not sure on what type of car, he did not know there was an internal mic on the left hand top of the unit. I explained that some American users had reported that it out performs the one to be fitted on the top of the steering column. They agreed to phone me during the fitting using the unit so I could compare the internal/external mics before they fitted the external mic. If there is no difference then I will not get them to fit the one on the column. They do not think they will be able to connect my existing mic by the rear view mirror. I also enquired if it would be possible to fit another external USB on the back of the unit which could be used to play music from a memory stick. I could then use the front one for Apple car play. He is going to look into that and I gave them details of the Rennlist forum information. The DAB booster aerials and the GPS aerial will be in the A pillars and the reception should be fine.  In the pack there is no printed operating manual just a download link. I have had to print the 54 pages so I can read through it in the car when the unit has been fitted. I have to admit the unit looks great and if you did not know the situation I believe that you would think that it had been in the car since new. As promised when fitted I'll give more details.

I was wondering about this too. Planning on purchasing one but having it installed at an ICE specialist along with a speaker & amp upgrade as I don’t have Bose fitted. Really looking forward to it!

Getting mine fitted on Thursday so I will let you know how it goes!  Not sure on the time allowed for fitting, but I am leaving my car there all afternoon.
With regard to the Chronograph and steering controls, this should all work fine, as that is one of the benefits of this unit rather than an aftermarket unit, and it should work with the Bose as well.  Mine has all of these so I will know by the end of the week!  I also have the CD multichanger, so we will see if that links too.
You should be able to get a discount if you have signed up to the Classic Register, and of course some dealers will be more obliging than others.  I will post when I have more details, or watch the Zoom presentation next Tuesday evening.
