    Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    Since the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) will not be an available option until MY '06 in the US...Will it be a retrofitable option thru Tequipment?

    What's your source for this information? It apparently is available now in England.

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    As stated in the Product Information Book:

    ' A tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) will be available as an option on the new 911Carrera as of MY06.'

    Any other good information from this Product Information Book? And where can we get a copy or see its contents. Is it on the web?

    The US brochure does not even mention the system and it does list other options that will be available later in the year.

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    think is kind a weird because this option is available from now on in this part of the world ...but surely it is not retrofitable..

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    Every US sales person was supplied with a copy of the Product Information Book
    Go to your dealer and ask to see it

    Porsche should include the TPMS as standard seeing as there is no spare.

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    I spoke with my dealer here in the USA today. First, TPMS is available now to be ordered on your 997. And second, it is not possible to retrofit later.

    What's the American price and option code? Is it on current, or delayed, production?

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    Sorry Arun. I asked my dealer today to add this option but as of this evening, it was not available from Porsche to be ordered. So if you can, ask your dealer if he can order it for you and let us know how it turns out.

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    I did ask my dealer, but I should clarify my order might be further out than some of you. The options we are talking about are or I should say will be available on the 997 relatively soon. Most of the dealers I have spoken with have confirmed that Porsche has a list of options that are delayed. I will get the codes for all of you out there. When I went to visit the dealer and saw the list of options that are due to be added to the order guide.

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    The dealer attempted to add TPMS to my October build but was unsuccessful.

    Re: Will TPMS be retrofitable??

    Doing some research and the supplier of the TPMS is BERU AG.
    Their website lists availability for the Porsche 911 series from 04/2005.

    My question to those of you in Germany is:
    Is it an a available option on the 997 yet?
    Has anybody seen or had experience with it on the 997?
