    2012 Porsche Panamera 4 Build

    So has anyone done a build on a newer Porsche? I am doing a build on a 2012 Porsche Panamera 4 in a couple weeks. I have done Mercedes, BMW and many other nice cars but never Porsche. Didn't know if there were any issues I should watch out for. We are keeping the stock headunit and running a JL Audio Clean Sweep. The Stock head units are nice and very integrated into the vehicle so I would rather leave it.

    Basically just looking for input on anything I should watch out for, idk just figured I would see what others have done.



    Current Set Up:
    1998 Grand Prix GTP Coupe
    Kenwood BT-900 Head Unit
    Memphis Power Reference PR-50.4 for the front stage
    Mmats 2100.2 amp (Want a Sundown 2500+)
    Bose Tweeters, RF T series 6.5's, Need some 6x9
    Ascendant Audio Mayhem 15 with stage 2 coil mod (in the back seat for now!)
    850 CCA front battery, NSB 180-FT rear battery
    2 runs of 0 guage, 1 run 4 gauge, Stinger RCA's
    Looking for H.O alt, 6x9 speakers, tweeters, JL 300/4,

    I have done several, but have yet to get a 2012 in to work on though. I don't recall any "need to know" issues that do not pertain to other cars.

    I can say in my experience the Porsche owners were/are much nicer customers to deal with.

    i second the suggestion of the ms8. it will also make the car sound amazing in the process.

    when you cut power take note of the serial number on the back of the stereo(if you take it out) might need this if it requires a stereo code.
