    Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan car

    I have a 997s on order. Is supposed to arrive in Jan. I asked the dealer to add the new phone module option but he says the car is almost done and it's too late.... BUMMER, but it also sounds like the car may arrive early... which I guess is cool - I can turn in the lease on my 996 early I guess ! I forget how long it takes to ship these things to CA ? 3-4 weeks by ship to coast then a few days over land right??? Sounds about right I guess for Jan delivery....

    Re: Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan car

    Your car will arrive with the updated faceplate
    So you will be able to get the GSM module thru Tequipment

    I've just been told it's too late to add a sunroof to my car which isn't being delivered until March! Still, saves me Pounds1,000 I suppose...

    San Diego Port, a few days from there to San Fran.

    Port of SD ? I thought they all came in on the East Coast?? Why would they ship through the canal ?


    OH - AND ERIC - THANKS for the clear side markers.. they're ALL READY to go on the new car !!!!

    Re: Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan car

    Can someone tell me about the "updated PCM faceplate" please.
    When was this introduced?
    What phone options (in the US) are there for a car without this?
    Thanks!

    When they introduced the Cayenne, they went from one US port, to 2 on the east coast and San Diego. Takes about 3.5 weeks on the boat to San Diego. From production completion date, add a few days to get on boat in Germany, and a few days to a week for PDI at San Diego and transportation to dealer.

    Starting with October production, all US cars had the new faceplate with the SIM card slot. Without this, there's a phone option that adds a cradle for you to clip you phone into (which can also be retrofitted on a 996).

    Re: Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan car

    Updated faceplate has SOS button and SIM card drawer.
    The new faceplate is now the worldwide standard and will come on all 997 and 987 models that have PCM.

    Option 666 Module for Telephone PCM $960
    Phone module for PCM allows users with a GSM phone to Insert a SIM card and use the PCM as a hands-free telephone.

    The Oct 5 Order guide lists:
    Option 618 Telephone Preparation
    Antenna, microphone, wiring harness, and cradle base needed for hands-free operation of a mobile phone. ***Dealer must install Main Kit and appropriate cradle for each specific phone model. These are available through your Parts Department*** $340

    Re: Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan car

    FWIW, I was told that option 618 was not available by my dealer for a January production.

    Re: Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan

    Thanks.
    I collected my 997 today and it does have the SIM slot.
    It must have been October production.
    I intend to retrofit the GSM option once it becomes available in the USA.

    Re: Dealer says it's TOO LATE to add phone module for my Jan car

    Don't believe it's too late, in that I've now owned my car for the last 2 months or so and the dealer indicates that this is something they can install for me when it becomes available, which I am told will be sometime in Dec.
