Is it possible to upgrade the PCM on my 99.1 to the newer 991.2 version as im going to fit a reversing camera so ideally if the upgrade is possile to do it at the same time.

Not possible and would surely be cost prohibitive. It’s one of the ways manufactures convince us to buy newer motors with better tech, so unlikely to be ever offered. You’d be looking at something like this for similar functions

Apparently other colours are available?

Actually... there's a guy (I think it was on Rennlist) who has done exactly this but in my view you'd need to seriously deranged to attempt it. Not just the hardware and coding issues, but huge firmware challenges as well, from what I recall.

However, a reputable source for integrated reversing camera and CarPlay electronics for retrofitting to PCM3.1s is NM Automotive, based in Jersey. Also sells through eBay, I think. Link is here: https://www.nmautomotive.co.uk/carplay-androidauto

You can get a reversing camera retro fitted for circa £ 500-600.

The main reason to upgrade the PCM is I presume for Apple Car play??. This You tuber ( Auto Amateur ) has recently done it. Might be worth a look.

I considered it myself after reading the Rennlist thread. CarPlay can be added anyway with the NMAuotmotive kit, but really the PCM4 is just a better screen and experience. I tried a couple of well know Porsche specialists to see if they would undertake it but the problem is apparently coding the new unit to the car, basically Porsche won’t supply the code to put PCM4 into a 991.1 even though it would work. Other issue is that you would need a different Bose or Burmester amp as well because the connection is different. I think give it time and somebody will come up with a solution, there certainly appears to be a lot of interest in doing this, probably indictIve of the number of people that intend to keep their 991.1 for a while.

I’m also intending to get TPMS retrofitted at some point. Mine is a 2013 so not standard fit
