    Paddle-shift steering wheel for Carrera

    The new sports steering wheel with paddles will soon (01-02/2010) become available for the Carrera range, for new cars and retrofit.

    I expect it to cost in the region of EUR 1.000 maybe little less.

    Are any of the 997.2 PDK owners thinking of changing?

    It should be nco. Porsche could then see if the really were right with their 1st attempt on PDK.

    No, I will not spend money on the paddles. I got used to the puddles. If I had a choice on a new car I would go for the paddles as they are definitely more natural and nicer to use.... Another 'problem' is that they are not on the steering column.

    Will you ?

    I have not driven the Turbo that was in the showroom. But when I sat in the car I noticed that the paddle steering wheel is thinner (like 997.1) which I liked.

    I am not sure yet until I drive a car, although I am very used to the buttons after 1 year.

     The redundant buttons are better. :)

    With 1.000 Euro you mean the retrofit, no? Smiley

    I would be surprised if it cost more than in case of the Turbo when you order it from the beginning.

    Yes, the amount is for retrofit, perhaps nearer EUR 900

    Re: Paddle-shift steering wheel for Carrera

    Reginos, thanks for the information about date and cost of the retro-fit.

    I have certainly got used to the buttons, and I never had a problem with the way they are set up.  But I have a HUGE problem with how plasticky they feel when depressed.  It is for this reason only that I would consider a change to paddles, provided they offer a better tactile feel.

    At present I use the gear lever, and imagine I'm in a cup car!!  I much prefer the more mechanical feel of changing using the gear lever.
