Picked mine up today from Porsche Preston, haven’t noticed anything different, all my settings still exist and overall a great service.

Well done Porsche Preston.

This is a worry. What made it apparent there was an issue?

Mines booked in for 2 weeks time as needed a loan car. Said they need for 2 days. Got a Boxster as a loaner so a bit of an anticlimax but could be worse I guess. Hopefully they are paying my petrol 😁

My car took 2.5 days and module 4 was finicky. After a couple tries they got it. All seems well after the update, so far

as you can probably imagine, the software that runs a high performance EV built to take on the world is, well, pretty complicated. Porsche says that it can build the update easily, but sending it out their service network and getting them to successfully apply it with all the vital checks will take some time…

Mine went in 9.00am last Thursday for the 4hr update and it was still with them midday Friday, at which point I was told the update had “fried” the PCM and it needed a replacement unit, which was on back order from Germany. Apparently it was the third such issue with a Taycan.
My MY20 went in yesterday for the updates and have just found out it is completely dead and will do nothing. They don't know why!! It was perfect before and now is just a brick. They have to give me an update tomorrow by 3pm but not looking good at all....

Well done Porsche Preston.
Pocked mine up today. Left it yesterday but don’t think they did anything until today.As you say can’t notice any difference and all settings the same. Didn’t even plug it in to charger whilst doing it. Thought I might of got a free charge! All fairly pain free. Think sport sound may have come on without me having to push my short cut button but can’t be sure yet of any changes. See more tomorrow morning when I start her up!
