THIS!!! Just picked one up off Amazon and reset all my intervals on my 2015 Panamera S E-Hybrid in under 10 mins right out of the box and no seperate laptop hookup needed.

Yes, it's small, no hassle, quick and easy to use. It's powered by the OBDII port so it doesn't even need batteries. I use it for my 987 as well instead of booting up the laptop and getting my (single VIN) Durametric going. Now that PIWIS 3 is out I have to question the Durametric Pro when a grey market stand alone PIWIS II is available for about $100 more. The PIWIS II won't support newer than 2017 while the Durametric should eventually be updated to support all the newer vehicles. I guess it depends on what vehicles each person sees in their future.

Can it show real-time cam shaft deviation on your Cayman?

i use my Durametric for this, but my laptop is getting long in tooth. I would like 1 tool for both cars, preferably without a laptop.

Hey negb! I'm a new forum member, saw on your recent post that your Panamera has an IPD Plenum in your list of goodies. I have a 2010 Panamera Turbo, sport exhaust, but otherwise stock. Was thinking of getting the IPD Plenum. Did you see a significant gain in power, or throttle response, etc?
Thanks for your time!

It does do real time data stream, similar to what my durametric basic cable offers, but I haven't checked for cam shaft deviation. I'd be surprised if it didn't as it seemed to have a pretty comprehensive list of data streams available and I would think the cam data should be accessible by most OBDII scan tools. By Friday I should have time to check it out and report back.

If durametric does not permit coding, does that close the door to replacing electrical components which require them to be “registered” after they are replaced? So if a door lock is replaced a trip to the dealer is required to get it registered.

I did check and I don't think it shows cam deviation, at least I couldn't find it. The iCarsoft doesn't have access to as many of the modules as the Durametric either, and it can't activate a function within a module. For example the Duramatric can roll the window up and down or turn the radio on and off. The iCarSoft can only read and clear faults with the module. I don't think the iCarsoft will allow you to get rid of the laptop. The iCarsoft is much better at resetting the service interval indicator. You can select what service and how long you want the interval. The Durametric only resets the interval on my 987.2 to 2 years, 20k miles. I have emailed Durametric support multiple times with that (and other) issues and I never get a response. It's unfortunate the Durametric is so half baked in comparison to a product like the VAG COM for VW. The Durametric is just to bug ridden and the support is non-existent to justify $735. If I end up needing a better tool that the iCarSoft for the Panamera I think I'll try a Chinese knockoff PIWIS II. It's only a little more than a Durametric Pro.

The iCarSoft is a decent tool for the money. It seems they recently released a newer version called the POR V2.0 which appears to be similar to the POR II but supports battery management system which would be a useful feature to have. The price is the same as the POR II.

So has anyone out there bought the chinese piwis system and reviewed it? I'm seeing them listed for about 1000 with the panasonic laptop, anywhere from 300 to 600 without. It seems to be a good set up with parts lists and diagrams built in. But i've not seen an actual users review yet.

I run it and have used it a number of times to pull Suspension/Engine codes, as well as to reset my service indicators.

Hopefully this helps clarify. I do wish it had coding and support for enhanced features, like Suspension calibration.
What a relief, so glad you clarified this! Made a recent purchase on the Pro and was just now reading through this thread.

Not on Panamera, but can on other Porsche Cars. My Cayenne turbo has greatly benefited from having Durametric, and able to adjust a whole lot of nice places. Eventually Durametric coverage for Panamera will increase. Eventually.

As for not working on an s. I don't see why not. Mine has a custom tune bigger turbos 715 hp and it works for mine
