Yes left the Factory stereo in place, i dont like after market Alpines and double din navis, and all that BS, Porsche needs to have the Porsche OEM + its a Bose and sounds great.. here is the write up kinda DIY i did on it on 6speedonline

So a couple of weeks ago i wrote a post regarding installing a tablet PC or some kind of gadget in the part where the lower cubbys go.

I didn't want to get an aftermarket Double Din unit, because i love my Stock Bose & didn't wanna deal with the headaches & Price of Double din.

To update the look of the car i went with a GPS Unit-
7" Magellan 9055LM RoadMate. One of the Few 7" GPS out there $299 has bluetooth & all that, (They also make cheaper ones 7" but less features) I went with 7" because it "Almost fit in there" + the smaller 5" ones would have had to have a panel built around them & there would have been too much "Plastic" empty space!

Removed both bottom cubby things, the unit was a bit too WIDE, it would fit in there but would POP out the right mid-council panel + its short so there was empty space on bottom.

Found a pretty smart car guy that works at Best Buy, he peeled the vinyl back a bit from the right panel of the car & trimmed the plastic a bit & put the vinly back on, then he made a piece of plastic to cover the bottom area- Also made an outlet BEHIND the council, that works with the radio so the GPS turns on & off with the ignition & you can't see the big ugly plug that originally would go in the cigarette lighter to charge the GPS.

Overall looks GREAT & Now perfect fit, no one can tell its not stock + I can just pull it out with a small tug & put it in another car if i want, At night the units colors are BlackBackground & ORange + Yellow for roads so its perfect withe interior of the car.. What i want now is to get small PORSCHE Script stickers & cover where it says magellan

Took a few night & Day pics!

Ya man I didn't want to change anything, this gives it a real clean oem look. Looks like it belongs there lol.

I love the rides. I have a 911 and a silver 7 as well.

My only advice for the 7 would lose the chrome strips on your bumpers, on a silver car its not terrible, but with the sporty direction that you went with I think it needs to happen.

I was thinking of getting the all grill & losing the chrome on the front, but its an LI so also has the 2 long chrome strips on the roof not just around the windows..so not sure which direction to go..if i remove the strips from the front & get black grill i think i'm gonna have to do shadowline black on all the chrome..

Oh and what kind of performance gains did you see in the 911 after you added the intake and exhaust?

Intake and Exhaust are "Sound Gains" the car may feel a bit quicker, they say the intake adds 20HP but i doubt thats true, no way only $300 will add that kind of HP. The exhaust sounds great though combined with the intake
