    retrofit TPMS

    My 997 was produced right before Porsche started to make it a standard option. I got a great deal buying it with only 900 miles on it. All of the options I wanted and none of the bling options that I did not want. But the one exception is TPMS.. My car does not have it. Is it possible to retrofit the Porsche TPMS on my car? Some of the aftermarket options like kind of kludgey and the Porsche TPMS integrates into the instrument cluster nicely.

    Re: retrofit TPMS

    Can't do it - you'd have to fit the receivers at each of the 4 corners then somehow integrate into a non-existant monitoring system in the info area of the dashboard.

    Good question as I am in the same (non TPMS) boat!

    Re: retrofit TPMS

    dan212 I feel your pain. A few of us are in that boat. What I did was went with an aftermarket system. My system are little value stems that screw onto the wheels and monitors the pressure. When the pressure gets low they emit a red flashing light. I must admit they work quite nice. You can check them out at http://store.vehiclelight.com/airalert.html . What I would do is search this forum for TPMS and you will get plenty of info on different options. You can also search the internet and see what you come accross. Let us know what you find.

    Re: retrofit TPMS

    FWIW, (maybe worthless) but, as I remember it, TPMS was supposed to be introduced with car but was delayed. This would mean there's a good chance the wiring harnesses have the wiring for TPMS. A retrofit becomes muuuuch easier with that being true. Maybe a bit if persistence at dealer (and a few thousand bucks) will get you TPMS ??????
