The T-design memory module for remembering center console button settings (ie: it keeps A/S/S off and sport on at every start up):

OEM wireless Android Auto coding to PCM. The coding was written in from the factory, but disabled when Porsche didn't make a deal with Google to allow it. I also have a Motorola MA1 plugged into the USB port so Android Auto works wirelessly. Also works with Apple Carplay

Installed a Function First weighted shift knob in black delrin with silver numbers( Its shorter and weighted much nicer than the OEM knob, which I still have if you want to go back):

I hardwired for a radar detector with a "MirrorTap" pin type connector (no cut wires) into the overhead light connector - easy to remove if you don't want a radar detector.

I'm on the waiting list for a 992S (manual / cab) and have been told I should get an allocation within the year. I figured it would make sense to list this now while the market is still strong and bank the funds towards the 992 if/when my name comes up.

Thanks. Still not 100% on selling it, but I figured I should put my best foot forward.

so after some soul searching and long discussions w/ my wife (brainf--ing as she calls it) I am officially taking it off the market and keeping it. I really like it, and can't justify the $100k upcharge for basically a color change. Hopefully I can stick by the decision and stop driving my wife crazy with the perservations. She is adamant that she doesn't care what I do, she just doesn't want to hear any more about it.

Reminds me of how a friend of mine managed to convince his wife that he needed to get a 911 in the first place. She got so sick of hearing about it that she was like "just buy the damn car because I dont want to hear about it anymore!"

This was about 5 years ago. He ended up buying a manual CPO 991.1 for I think around 60k (imagine that now!), and keeping it for a few years. He never really bonded with it, and ended up going back to a Miata. Now, he's over cars entirely and just into biking. Kinda crazy since this guy was more obsessed with cars than any of us!
