    Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    Last week before order goes to porsche and impossibility to change options..

    I still hesitate between PCM, bose and full leather .. Dont want take all because price of my boxster with options would exceed boxster S..
    2 out of 2 likely.

    I know that PCM is nice feature and useful, but one can use mobile GPS , also I heard that PCM alpli is better than stock. As for full leather, in black interior less relevant but nice cosy impression.Bose, well I am audiophile, but read that the system is not so good.

    What about your experience with these options, would u consider taking them ? which one ? I wonder whether full leather + navi without bose is the must have combo, on the other hand, I like listening radio in the car..so dont know if can get rid of the bose if qualitative leap compared to stock system. agggg

    tks

    Re: Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    I was in exactly your situation and included PCM and Bose, and went with the standard leather.

    Unless you know an excellent audio shop or can do an installation yourself, I would go with the Bose. It may not be the best system in cars today, but I find it to be adequate.

    The PCM works well, but if I had to do it over again, I would definitely go with the special leather instead and then use the balance of the money on smaller options like a sport wheel or chrome exhaust tip or some other such items. I tend to use my car on shorter trips in familiar areas, so the PCM is really just a toy.

    Finally, if there are some smaller options you really want but are worried about spending too much money, get them NOW. I didn't get things like the sport wheel (standard wheel has a terrible feel to it; not sure it's leather)because I set a limit on how much I wanted to spend. Now, though,I wish I had included some of those extra options.

    Good luck on your choices.

    Re: Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    I really like full leather, and think for it. As for Bose, I read that not an audiophile system, and that differnce with sound package not huge.; So likely save some bucks on bose and go for sound package instead

    Re: Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    For me,i like very much the pcm.

    Re: Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    I finnally got the full leather with sport seats and PCM.. Saved some bucks on bose and went for sound package

    Re: Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    Sounds like a good choice to me!

    Re: Which options ? Full leather, pcm or bose,

    Full leather and PCM

    You don't need Blose with that engine behind you.

    The full leather gives off a pretty nice smell too, standard leather smells a little too sterile IMO. PCM I would get just because it can play MP3 CD's - the standard unit cannot.

    Agree - I've got Bose in mine and it sounds great - in the garage! Hardly ever listen to it when driving. Flat 6 sounds much better.

    Well tks for your help anyway, I was also motivated bw the nice combo sport seats and full black leather, with atlas outside
