the garage still has it as the bumper respray did not go as planned.....

the foreman said the wheel drove great with the paddles and looks better, he really likes it but said it was a quick fit, ie no money for him

Robbie, has he tested the horn as if everything works inc the horn and the paddles without the new module . you will be the first that I know of and I have seen this done dozens of times. Question

There seems to be an assumption you need the new module when doing this mod, but not everyone will need it as shown here. I fitted a new wheel to my car and did not need it. Anyone doing this mod should try fitting before spending £230 on a module.

I wonder why that is Isys , more seem to need it than don't , I have to admit it was a right pain when I needed it and hadn't got it. I was of the understanding you only didnt need it if you were fitting a manual gen2 wheel .
Hopefully Robbie will be able to get his returned ok if his horn and paddles are working ok.
I have never seen a tip one done down here that didnt need the module changing over Dont know

apparently the horn works as well!

no pics yet, looks like they need to re-paint the bumper as the had micro cracks from the primer. The painter said you get that with copies but its a new Porsche part!

Hope they can do a proper job. I had a painter f**k up my car a few years ago (at Porscheshop). He screwed up a front bumper/wings/bonnet paint job and also rear bumper and wanted to paint the whole car to 'fix' the problem.

I'll only use Road & Race now. Took my car to Wilmslow for the service and Alan from Servicing (top bloke) asked what I had on the paint to make it look so good. I said 'nothing, it's just the paint!'

I am amazed , but a result for you not needing the module. makes the job much more cost effective. Thumb

Hi - first post

Recently bought a 2005 997 c4s tip and of course , love it.

I'm considering changing the steering wheel to a flappy paddle, and have followed this thread with interest.

I have sourced a 981 wheel with no multifunction buttons - as mine.

I gather that the swap can be done, but I do not have the technical ability (by a long way !)- can anyone recommend someone who could do this for , preferably in the Cheshire area.

Thanks for your help.


Mark

Just about to embark on this myself in my 997.2 with existing sport design wheel with paddles, hoping to gain multifunction and retain paddles so a 991/Macan wheel is on the cards.

I have just received the conversion cable from the fella on facebook, very fast service by the way. He said my car shouldn't need coding after fitting the new wheel as a gen2, I'll wait to see.

I haven't bought a wheel yet. Do I need a 991/Macan airbag or will my 997.2 one fit? Any other possible wheels to look out for? Panamera?

if you need the horse shoe I will sell you one as mine didn't need it. It might be as I didn't use the buttons

Mark whoever you get to do it make sure they turn on the multifunction option in Piwis even though you dont have it , this will along with the highly likely needed newer steering control module make the horn work .
good luck keep us posted. Some are lucky enough not to need the newer steering control module but most do need it. Thumb
