2006 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

The stereo looks really good in black Thumb and looks OEM too!

You can get the steering wheels direct from Porsche for about £700, cheaper than D911 (then again isn't everything!) £250 for the airbag is a great price!

Agree with everyone else it looks great, did you paint the interior yourself too?


Yes, painted the rest myself.

Took apart the control panels, left with only the facias

Managed to get a great match!

Hi
My car is 2007, will fit all 997. Had to also change the airbag.
Horn is the issue, did my own wire fix to make it work.

Great job on the retrofit. IMHO that actually looks better than the PCM 3.

Top job...

Are the black units only available in Germany?

and..

What are the details (make and colour code) for the paint that you used?

Did you just spray over the existing finish?

Cheers

Thank you!! 😎

Contact a U.K. Seller via the Zenec website. Just found a black one 3 months old in Germany.
Believe it or not, used Warhammer model spray paint!, match is perfect.
Took the switch panels apart, sanded down painted over existing colour.

Thats the one, great paint. Sprayed 3-4 thin coats.

The switch covers are tricky to take out.....

BTW, fitted the Sat Nav aerial under the black panel holding the wiper blades.

routed through the grommet behind the battery, works perfect!

what makes this interesting is the premium that the limited number of Gen 1.5 Turbo cars trade at for mainly the sat nav

this is a much better Gen 1 route for those considering the 1.5 for the sat nav upgrade

Nicely done Kam Thumb

Agree, taken the look of the dash to another level. The Zenec is a great system, touch screen

this is a much better Gen 1 route for those considering the 1.5 for the sat nav upgrade

Nicely done Kam Thumb


Agree, The dash just looks much better. The Zenec is a great system, touch screen with full iPhone music control.😎
