It took me about an hour to do all the pieces but the center console piece. The dealer did that one for free for me.

Is it all just as easy as popping out with a pry tool and snapping back in? Save for the center piece that you need to take the radio out for?

Yes - the rear center console release by pushing towards the opposite door.


the pieces in the rear door by the handles have a small screw in in them. Otherwise straight forward.

I had the Tineo, and swapped it for the CF. Much better. I had the dealer do it as a)I didn't have the time b)I don't have the patience c)I would probably break something.

The only thing trouble I had was the panel was loose on the driver's side for a while and had to taken it back twice to get the panel screws tightened. It would shake and rattle from the Burmeister subs.

Otherwise very happy as it totally changes the look of the car. I purchases the trim from Suncoast - all pieces were wrapped and took it to the dealer to get it changes. 2 hour job I think?

The dealer I called quoted 8 hrs and 1500 just for labor... high right?

Who was the dealer that quoted you that? Napleton?

I don't know anyone that does interior trim for Porsche. But I'd call around to custom car Audio shops near you. They have the tools for the job.

My 2015 GTS came with Piano Black.

Maybe it's because of the black baby grand piano in our living room, but I love it in my white Panamera GTS.

Yes, it shows finger prints. Why do you put your fingers on it, then? It doesn't do anything when you touch it, there's no reason to touch it.

But if you do, there's a bright green microfiber cloth in the center console that instantly buffs away the finger prints and it looks phenomenal again. Did your car not come with a bright green microfiber cloth in the center console?

Did my 2011 in a couple of hours -- being very careful. Not a difficult job. Buy the trim tools from Suncoast when you order. They are handy.

What if some of the clips fall off and aren't put back on... what does that affect? They still go in anyway

The little metal pieces attached to the plastic clips. Some came off during removal. Does it matter if I put them back on? They all went back in snug anyway
