Hi all,

Looking to trade the factory fitted switchable PSE on my 981 cayman s for the standard exhaust (too noisy for me!). Car has done 20k and exhaust in good nick. Chatted to RPMtechniq and they are happy to change. Located in London.

Cheers,

Matt

Surely you can drive around with the PSE switched off....? You will devalue the residuals of your car if you make this modification.

Just don't switch it on ie when you press the sport button and it turns PSE on you can still turn PSE off and leave sport mode on. Its free and will not affect residuals of your car Dont know

Does the 981 have a separate PSE button for independent control over the Sport button then?!

Surely you're not serious Question under-grading a factory spec, that's a new one on me.

What about thinking outside the box. For example:

You take the PSE off, but leave the switch and wiring in place. Phone a few breaker yards up. Get a standard exhaust fitted. Then put the PSE in the garage loft (or wherever is dry).

Come the time to trade it in, you put it back to PSE. Then flog the standard donor exhaust on Ebay.

That way you lose zero further more than needlessly necessary, and put a few shillings in the back pocket for the standard exhaust.

Obviously it's your choice ultimately, however back me up if you think this is a far better option Thumb
