    Which steering wheel option should I choose -997S?

    Guys,
    I searched this forum on steering wheels and read all of the replies. What I didn't get was which steering wheel option I should choose. My US order form shows 8 options:
    431, 451, 452, 453, 459, 460, XPA, and XPV. Is there an obvious choice to order or should I just accept the standard for the 997S. Thanks.

    Re: Which steering wheel option should I choose -997S?

    Hum...most of the options shoube be the regular steering wheel (or the multi-function one) finishes in leather, alumunium, carbon, etc....

    Personally i love the sports steering wheel (wich is standard on the carrera s), it's a shame that you dont have the possbility of having the multi-function buttons on these one and even more shamefull is the fact you cant have it in carbon or alumunium...

    Well...maybe in a few mouths these options will be avaliable for the sports steering wheel.

    I would go for the standard steering wheel of the s.

    Woshhhhhhhh

    I also have grown to like the standard Carrera S wheel, but want to have all the usual buttons for sat nav and phone on it. Crazy that I have to go for the other wheel to get this - I think the other wheel looks quite dated, and like it should be on a Boxster.

    Get the least "flashy" looking IMHO

    sorry I don't know the specific options (yet) BUt the thing that bothers me is the _bright_ apparently distracting aluminum-looking accents on the wheels. I figure the wheel whould be LEAST obtrusive, or obvious or in-your-face.

    Do you really think you'd spend that much time looking at the steering wheel when you're driving?

    Hey, I dunno.

    I was looking thru some of the 911 magazine stuff and saw a pic of the guy driving and spontaneously wondered, "gee, that's alot of shiney metallic accenting on that wheel."

    Will definitely check it out when I actually get to sit in one.

    May or may not be an issue. $.02
