I have also replaced the rear speakers with 4" x 6" Polk Audio EX462a speakers as one of the original Blaupunkt speakers was blown. The AM/FM cd player that came with the car is not original.

I purchased a replacement Owner's Manual from My Porsche in Seaside, CA, and a replacement spare tire pump from Carlsen Porsche.
