Well, it depends. The buttons will do the same thing if pressed in the same place. If you change the order, it will do whatever it was programmed to do regardless of the picture on the button.

My question for you is if the $1,800 quoted excludes both the side mufflers and tips, or just the tips. Or do you get the side mufflers anyway, and just need to throw them away if you own an S? Just curious.
There are two versions of the kit. One for base cars' 3.4L engines and one for S cars' 3.8L. Suncoast allows you to choose your car type and appropriate up-charge for base cars because that kit DOES include side mufflers. If you have a base car, you will also need the PSE exhaust tips. The base standard tips won't fit.

The $1800 price I got includes everything necessary for my S (and nothing more), which means no side mufflers and no exhaust tips.

yes it can be done, I installed my PSE after and my button is in the middle. it all depends on where you put it when you replace the button console. I guess i did it the OEM way so that's how they programmed it

If someone needs PSE tips send me a PM - I have a pair of Black GTS ovals.

Sonnen Porsche FTW! I priced it all out with them and they ended up being more than $200 cheaper than Suncoast. Placed my order today. Looks like I'll be having my indy do the work, though. The dealership near me met my price on labor but told me they couldn't get to my parts price, which they originally quoted as more than DOUBLE Sonnen's! They said the price I asked for was below their cost...

991.1

Turns out the dealership is allowing me to bring in the parts (!), so I'm going with them as a one stop shop at the price I requested. This way I know it'll be done right (or at least I can demand they get it right eventually!) and they can program the button all at the same time. I might crack open the box for the console button and place the PSE switch where I want it myself, though, so they are prepped for where it's supposed to be. I don't want them forgetting that I asked for it in the middle slot. I'll put it there myself and have it ready for them...

I DIY'ed the PSE install myself on a '13 4S. If your dealer is going to charge you labor for the buttons, do it yourself. You'll still have to have them program it. It literally takes 10 minutes from start to finish. If you can build a basic 20 piece lego kit, you can put it together.

If your're poor like me, you should keep the old button module and can sell it for $100.

Also the Non PSE tips WILL Fit on the PSE exhaust with a mil gap (if that) or so. I'm as **** as they come, and the only way I could see the gap is by laying on the ground and pointing a flashlight from the center of the car toward the back. It is not loose fitting.
