2015 Porsche 991 GT3

PostPosted: Thu Feb 02, 2017 8:08 pm    Post subject: Gt3 seats / Gen2 steering wheel upgrade Reply with quote

Gt3 style seats and manual steering wheel in Alcantara.
Very happy with the result! Cool

Installed heated seat elements in the seats. Had the seats covered in "real" Grey Alcantara with gator and centre glove box cover.

Read of issues with the horn not Working. Mine did not work after installation. Did some thinking and routed a couple of wires on the steering wheel loom. Two ground wires for the horn, one works with the ignition off other ignition on engine running. No need to program the control unit. All working fine!

All original wires to the wheel untouched and easy to swap back.

Will post a new thread with my wiring diagram.

Love the look of the seats, not sure I could live with them for comfort though, how are you finding them though?

Added another foam to the base and rear. Did feel my shoulders where at an angle. The additional rear foam has helped. Also installed heat elements.
Very happy! Thanks

Bought 2" foam and had them cut to shape with a cardboard template.

Heated kit from eBay, elements push under the alcantara. Wired and fitted myself.

Switches fitted bottom right do each seat base.

Ok great, not sure I'm brave enough, my current seats are electric and I can cope with ammending woring, not sure I can pull a seat apart though..

All OEM parts etc left as is, did not have to touch any original wiring.

Had to fit resistors for the seat air bags.

Not really like that, maybe if the back seats were out I think it would look better. Steering wheel look ace

I know a good steering wheel upholstery guy, he has converted a wheel to flat bottom for me in the past. Pm me your email if you are interested.
