I did not watch the process as it was most of the day. But my SA said it was hardware first followed by software. That would make sense too. No new problems as I've noted in several posts and power...

I wired in the relay when I built the harness for my P3. You can get one at any just about auto parts store. I got mine at O'Reilly's. May not need it but I added it just in case.

Would be interesting to test both MY and see ... anyone know if Porsche uses any focus group studies prior to release or is it internal concept only and after sales feedback. Mostly curious.
