Cool, can they repair? Wasn't sure from website... any idea on cost, if it's cheaper than a second hand unit from ebay I would be interested. .. but then mine is a really old unit which doesn't even play mp3 cds so if I could swap with a later model that would also be good!

Jesus I had actually forgotten how terrible a PCM2.1 looks! Looks like it's 1987!

There I am, thinking of upgrading my upgrade!

I agree if you going to have to spend money on the 2.1 then worth considering upgrading to an aftermarket double din and get car play , mirror link, streaming and all the other 2017 tech Thumb

I agree, they do look really dated now, hence one of the reasons I am considering a 991, I just feel the 997 interior is quite dated in general... I don't think id go for aftermarket, that's one area I have to agree with the purist bunch, I don't really like the look of aftermarket in there...
I have been looking and I think it's easy enough to get the pcm unit out, so I'll probably just send it off for repair or even have a go myself if I can find the screen on ebay and I feel brave!
Bloody thing! Ive emailed a few of the companies who do the repairs so no idea on cost yet.
I might have a look at doing the AC control knobs while ive got it apart as well...

Yeah I know what the purists mean, but mine is a daily drive so it needs to function properly and not wind me up when I use it, as the PCM2.1 does/did.

If I ever need to make it stock, I can simply get a PCM2.1 from places like ebay......

So, take it out, put something nice in, put the PCM back in when and if you need to!

Don't think I really understand what a 'purist' actually is, are they infiltrating this forum Question
