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.

I sold my car. Before I sold I acquired all of the parts necessary to install. Here is my eBay link. https://www.ebay.com/itm/30290668542...84.m1555.l2649

Early 997’s did not have Sirius XM radio. The 2008’s and up did have it available. These are all of the parts necessary to add Sirius XM radio to a 997 Porsche. My car was a 2007 997 Carrera Coupe. I sold my car. I bought all of these parts new except the 2008 Porsche Cayenne Sirius XM module. I bought the lowest mileage module that I could find. I researched every forum and website I could find and these are all the parts necessary. The wiring harness was the most difficult there were none in the United States I ordered it through Pelican Parts from Germany. All the step by step instruction are included with photos. I emailed a couple of guys from the forums and they told me it was "plug and play". They followed the instructions and pulled the car outside, pushed the AM/FM button and XM showed up on the screen. They called Sirius with the code displayed on the screen and they now had Sirius XM. Here is one of the links:

This kit is for a car with BOSE but no NAV or CD changer.

This kit includes:
1) SIRIUS/XM TUNER: 7L5910563 / 7L5 910 563
2) MOST/ELECTRICAL HARNESS: 955.044.900.80
3) SAT RADIO ANTENNA

4) SAT RADIO ANTENNA SPLITTER
