    Same goes for all the interior parts in aluminium trim. I don't mind that too much on interior trim parts, but what most disappointed me was the inserts on the 991 steering wheel. For the price you pay for these kind of cars, is it asking too much for some decent materials? Especially the ones you come in direct touch with; you can fool the eye, but you can instantly feel that it is plastic when you touch it.

    Comparing the interior of my former 996 Carrera (first water cooled 911) with my current 991.2 Carrera GTS Convertible, it is like comparing the interior quality of a Lada with a Mercedes S class. No kidding. It was sooooo bad... Smiley Plastic everywhere, bad quality plastic, bad smelling plastic and it felt weird as well (haptics).

    True, I have to admit, they have come a long way from the 996.

    It’s not just the plastic on the steering wheel but also the “cheap” feeling turn signal levers. I hate them. They feel like they could break off any minute.

    Yeah, I get what you mean. But to be honest, I have never driven any car where I felt that the turn signal levers were confidence inspiring. (Admitted, being a "poor maan", I almost exclusively drive poor man's cars :-/ )

    i actually liked the Huracan method (turn signals, etc. in the steering wheel) quite a lot, didn't expect that. Needs some getting used to though.

    I think you are talking about the Fins. The Canadians just huddle together and drink beer while watching some idiotic tourists do that. And the Swedes? They are busy with their twins to even think about doing those things.

    Did you have to take the steering wheel off? Disconnect the battery and so on?

    I one change the steering wheel on the Boxster and it was a bit of effort getting airbag and cabling right.

    Just got this not very nice rumor news. Apparently, 991.2 GT3 RS from production October 2018 Will have less power. More restrictive exhaust system acquired for new regulations is to blame.

    I would think this would make it more socially responsible and desirable. The over powered polluting version will be worthless on the used car market.  Can’t wait to see the 992 Econ numbers. (Do I need a sarcasm warning at this point with you guys?)


    Re: OFFICIAL: 991.2 GT3 RS (2018)

    Sounds more plausible than it being exactly the same power output and loudness.. Especially since e.g. BMW has quoted significant power reductions when fitting PFs to their cars.
