    Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    Anyone had this done? I've just been quoted Pounds2129.53 Inc vat by Hatfield PO.

    Seems a lot, but they are quoting 8 hours to fit.

    I have cromo on a C2S.

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    I have just received the new 997 Tequipment catalogue....

    PSE vehicles with sport chrono.....Pounds1582.81 + vat =Pounds1858.85

    So which is right ..official literature or an OPC out of thin air figure...

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    I had a "Dealer News" brochure through from Cambridge OPC recently, quite a nice newsletter with all sorts of articles on things like the Turbo, GT3, etc. There was a small section in it quoting approx Pounds1500 for PSE retro install. Sounds like they might be worth giving a call, not too far from Hatfield.

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    Check out my post a couple of weeks back:

    OPC Reading have verbally agreed to this price, but I am yet to have the work done and subsequently presented with a bill!

    It shouldn't take 8 hours to fit. That was for the old 996.

    For the 997 it's 3.3 hours if you already have a sports button, 4.4 hours if you don't.

    If your OPC argues then I will forward you the Porsche official PSE retrofit installation document which specifies these times.

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    Thanks Alex,

    I thought it seemed expensive.

    Does the dealer have to follow the official times?

    Could you kindly forward the document to my PM

    Cheers

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    Thanks Nick...I'll call them today

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    The below is from the Porsche official PSE Installation Instructions. If anyone wishes me to send them the whole PDF then PM me your email address.

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    I phoned Cambridge and they quoted Pounds1582.81 including VAT (this now seems cheap?), car is booked in for late April (parts take a time to turn up).

    Hatfield PO have not yet responded to my email of earlier, perhaps its time to forward the PDF Alex kindly forwarded....

    Thanks again to you all

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    Cheap, why cheap?! Seem a few quid higher than my figure, probably due to a slightly different labor rate.

    Either way, well negotiated

    Now comes the waiting game, some people have been waiting I know since before Christmas and the parts are still not available...

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    VAT is included?....Taffy quoted Pounds1582.81 + vat =Pounds1858.85 on an earlier post

    Car booked in for the end of April; as long as I have PSE for my Le Mans trip, I'll be fine.

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    No my figure of 1543.87 was with VAT.

    As I say though I haven't actually got the bill yet so until I do this amount may undergo further arguing. Personally I don't see any angle they can argue if you present them with the labor times I indicated.

    Re: Retro PSE Install Cost (UK)

    A nice saving PoundsPoundsPoundsPoundsPounds there , beer money for Le Mans no doubt......lol

    Like Alex says - use these figures to haggle. In my case (without Sports Chrono) the labour time is higher (4.4 hours) and labour costs at my OPC are Pounds105 per hour, so I will be paying more, plus the cost of the switch.

    Nevertheless I will be paying about Pounds500 less than the original quote which incorporated 8 hours labour. This figure was right for the 996 fitting but not the 997!

    It pays to show them that you know what you're talking about.

    Thanks again Alex.

    Yep...Alex has saved us some brass....
    Cheers and power to the forum and most importantly more beer money and noise for Le Mans.
