2) MOST/ELECTRICAL HARNESS: 955.044.900.80 - you can get it from your dealer.

3) SAT RADIO ANTENNA: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000E7WI0O

4) SAT RADIO ANTENNA SPLITTER: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002GOH42
Are these the same parts for 2009+ 3.0 PCM units??? (Or is this only for PCM 2.1.)

I just purchased the parts necessary to install Sirius radio in my recently acquired 2007 997. I have no CD changer and no navigation. I believe I can handle the installation with the three page download that I have from Renntech. The instructions make no mention of the necessity to go to the dealer and have the car re-programmed to recognize the new unit. Other posts say this is necessary. Can you shed some light please? Thanks!

I installed the Cayenne OEM XM receiver in my 2008 C2S Cab based on similar instructions and did not have to do anything other than transfer my XM service from another car I was selling. I only noted one major issue: I originally mounted my Sirius/XM antenna under the cowling per the instructions, but got highly intermittent and pretty terrible reception. I ascribe this to living in the Pacific Northwest and *always* having trees and/or mountains blocking my signal. I got another magnetic antenna with a long cable and tried it in different locations all over the car. I empirically discovered the best, most consistent reception (rivaling my wife's factory Sirius XM reception) came from mounting the magnetic antenna to the top of the windshield frame and running the cable under the weather stripping. In a partially successful attempt to make it look more "factory," I painted it Midnight Blue Metallic with a Clearcoat. I have since operated the cab top hundreds of times with no apparent wear or failure of the wire. Again, no trip to my dealer was necessary, but I already had the CD player in the trunk, which I still use.
