Anyone get a letter stating that the car needs to go into the dealer to get a software update which will take 4 hours?

No - but mine is a MY21 from Nov 2020 so perhaps does not need one...

You will get one then.
Maybe but in some respects, I actually hope not - mine has been working absolutely flawlessly since day 1 - everything is slick and works a treat so unless there is some "new magic" I might hold back ;-)

Mine is MY21 from January and I need one
Oh well - I guess the letter is en route then...I will be keen to understand why it needs updating and what's changed if anyone knows...

I received the letter today for my MY21 4S - January 2021. A little frustrating that we cannot carry out the update ourselves at home. Getting the car to a dealer for 4 hours is a bit of a ballache for me as the dealer is 25 miles away!

Anyone with a MY2020 received a letter? I wonder whether they're holding off on MY2020 as haven't received one yet. As per other threads, seems that the MY2020 up-date will be much longer than 4 hours...

That’s it?? Hardly worth it for my car. I have no issues with any of those things...
Mmm considering the initiative Porsche is showing to bring cars into the shop for a four hour sw upgrade and the cost to Porsche to do so... I think there is a lot unsaid in that letter in regards to bug fixes etc that this SW will address... its your car - but I would probably bring it in....

I have an appointment for the MY20 large software update in week 13 ( release of the software is expected in week 12). They scheduled two days but I don't know whether that is done as precaution (btw I get as loaner a Taycan for the first time)

Yeah, I think the MY2020 is a two-day process, so must be what you're getting.
