    997S Steering wheel

    I dont care for the STD steering wheel on 997S. How difficult would it be to replace? Do you guys have any picture of interesting wheels that will fit 997s? Thanks !

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    try the factory sports steering wheel, may not look the flash-est but it is nice for spirited driving...

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    What's wrong with it? The round center? THAT's what's NEW in car styling. The triangular shape's been around for decade, hasn't it?

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    i still prefer the triangle shape .. the round one just brings back memories of a MINI...goes down to a matter of taste really

    Yeah, you're right, frickin "taste." Sometimes i think "taste" is just a habit. Everybody says we should all try new things, be open to new experiences... . Boy, that's hard to do with a $100K car "investment."

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    Yes I sort of prefer the triangle shape also. I ordered this wheel with my car the thicker leather. I like the way it feels. Round center, oh well.

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    What's funny? There were a bunch of details which bothered me when the car first came out and I ordered my car with the options I could to "get rid" of some of those details which bothered me.

    Nowadays I love the car (anybody's optioned version) and I even like most (not all) of the details I once "hated."

    I wonder when BMW (Bangle-versions) will start to NOT bother me, soon? Actually the z3 and z4 don't look as hideous to me now as I once thought !

    MMD:

    I am with you on this one. I hate to admit it but I almost like the new 5 series now. I hated it when it first came out. We had a 1998 5 series and couldn't stand the new body and I ended up in a E class Mercedes.

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    The leather, specially the center piece is a really cheap, if it is leather at all A car at this price range should have a kick A$# wheel that feels and looks good. I like the Cayyenne triangular wheel with all the buttons but it just doesnt look good in 997s. It kind of looks oversize for a sport car.

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    The new suede Sport Wheel on the 997 GT3 looks great!!

    Do you mean the standard Wheel with the C2 because thats exactly what I felt and included in this was the sun visors. Although I kept the standard sun visors I did upgrade to the smooth leather steering wheel. I understand this matches the leather on the dash better.

    The C2S wheel's fine IMHO.

    The visors are downright shameful! They're sooooo bad it's almost FUNNY! WOW

    Hi Maryo,

    looks very nice!

    Here one more

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    I got the Multifunction wheel and I like it - particularly good for adjusting the volume of the stereo. Quite like the thinner style now, although the places to hook your thumbs are a bit small / low profile on the standard and MF wheels.

    P.S. I agree about some of the Bangle BMWs: I now have changed my views - I like the 1-Series, the Z4 and latterly the 5-Series (although the wheels are too small and out of proportion with the rest of the car - fixed by the M5). Still don't like the 7-Series - the rear is fugly and looks unfinished. I absolutely hate the 6 series - low slung a***, which looks to me like a failed attempt to copy a P-Car style rear combined with a sort of weird morphed spoiler type thing on top... The 3 Series is just dull - was walking down the road the other day and thinking how much better and more aggressive the old 3-Series looks.

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    i like the techart wheel ,looks nice! is the tech art logo removable?

    hi pabsl,

    first:the watch you are detecting is panerai submersible
    second : you can contact to username:JAN on rennteam to get more info about the steering wheel.

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    that's sharp! what is the exact model type/number? what did you pay total including installation? thanks!

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    I think the round center looks way better than the triangle one.

    Re: 997S Steering wheel

    Same here. Leave the triangle wheel to the Cayenne. However, I do wish I could have volume controls on the steering wheel (like the multi-function wheel)...
