Hello you will need: All working keys (with good batteries) Any new keys with their 40 digit unique number tag Your car's (found from the VIN) unique IPAS codes (available from your dealer after proof of ownership) and a PST2 or PWIS test tool to do the programming.If you have everything together a 'good dealer' or 'good shop' would charge you only about 1 hour labor to do thisthis is sadly not a DIY option but if you can find a independent Porsche specialist with access to right kit then you will save money there instead of going to the dealer
