997.1 sea blue wheels and bags are not that hard to find. If I just wanted to change to the 997.1 round sport steering wheel, which to me is still really nice. I just feel that if I am putting the effort in to change it, I might aswell go all out for the 997.2 wheel.


that's what i did.... still quite an endeavour

I wonder if a black wheel would go with a blue interior. Anyone got any pics?


i had mine custom re-warpped in an oem dual tone black (perf leather) + sea blue, with the back Multifunction trim plate I added a used (but mint) black leather airbag. it was too costly otherwise going sea blue airbag (had to be new only)


I have just brought an Aqua gen2 with sea blue interior could you post a pic of your retrimmed wheel so I can get some ideas as the plain seablue wheel needs a lift. Thumb

hey man, i basically stole the idea off this wheel on eBay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/291942288226?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

- instead of the silver at the top and bottom of the eBay wheel, i replaced that with sea blue leather instead.
- the black leather on the sides i got done as perforated leather
- added grey leather stripe at the top
- added thicker padding all around
- black leather oem airbag + the black multifunction plate as well.

i havnet installed yet so once its done then i will post some photos - if i could do it again i would have sent the wheel core to a company in lithuania/poland to do the refurb work as they do can even do a flat bottom adjustment and their workmanship/quality/leather is literally oem level.

here is the lithuania company - the workmanship is killer.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/262942415427?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

also don't forget that the 991.2 wheel with full multifunction control has been cracked for 997s; that is the route i would go today had i not already done what i have previously with the custom 997.2 wheel.

Ive recently brought a all black manual non multifunctional cayman steering wheel to put on my car. With the idea of getting it retrimed in blue. Heres a pic below of what it will look like.

did you buy it already?

this multifunction 6 speed wheel would make a PERFECT candidate for leather re-wrap .

bought a used 2010 steering wheel core and had it recovered in
- thicker padded overall
- Perforated black leather sides
- seablue leather at the top and bottom of wheel
- grey contrast stitching
- grey top stripe

the grey/silver faceplate will be removed as i also found another steering wheel with a black multifunction faceplate that i will be throwing on this black+blue wheel (see below)


i will be removing the black faceplate off this steering wheel and throwing it on my wheel above.


i also have a next to new mint oem practically new 997.2 black airbag Leather that will finish off the steering wheel.

i had no choice but to go the route of a black leather airbag simple due to the fact that a sea blue leather 997.2 airbag would HAVE to be brand new (and cost a small fortune).

ill paint my pcm black and likely have my lower console done in cobalt blue.

should look sharp!

Some very nice upgrades in the pics, I am toying with the idea of upgrading my new 997.2 wheel ,I have a carbon gen2 wheel that is pdk non mf so was going to get linas to use the carbon from that and either modify my sea blue gen2 manual mf wheel so that it was carbon and seablue leather or carbon and black alcantara to match the alcantara gear knob , armrest and handbreak rear , but the airbag is seablue so trying to picture how a seablue airbag would look with carbon and alcantara but after seeing the seablue retrimmed wheel in one of the pics I am leaning towards carbon and seablue and getting linas to thicken up the grip and thumb rests.
So thanks for the pics as its clearer for me ti visualise now. Thumb

I've done a few interior upgrades but for me the upgrade from triangle centre wheel to GEN 2 wheel is by far the best!!

Ooooohhhh I'm liking the idea of this mod Scratch Chin

I've always thought that the triangular wheel on my '7.1 turbo belonged in a Transit van more than a Porsche. Watching with genuine interest Thumb

This one looks good if anyone wants a sea blue one -
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Porsche-911-type-997-Genuine-steering-wheel-in-Sea-Blue-/282534958856?hash=item41c8655708:g:P4UAAOSwgv5ZPbac

Is it possible to convert a pdk wheel to manual? seems to be loads of pdk ones for sale at a good price but no manual ones? Can the facia just be changed to remove the buttons?

Rob , Linas may be able to do it , the PDK one has a section cut out of the back for the rocker levers the manual one doesnt. this was my issue as my carbon pdk one is not a straight fit on my new gen 2 manual so was going to give the carbon pdk wheel and the sea blue manual MF wheel to Linas and hopefully I will end up with a carbon and sea blue leather manual MF wheel and a bag of unused wheel bits Grin Grin Thumb

I have always fancied a move from my multi-function triangular wheel to this alcantara wheel:

http://www.design911.co.uk/fu/prod129311/Porsche--Multi-function-steering-wheel-in-Black-Alcantara-for-MANUAL-cars-99704440214/

only thing putting me off is the eye watering cost!

HOLY crap that is a rare find. oem sea blue parts are impossible to find imo. if i found that wheel on north america eBay i would have picked that up for sure.

you can convert a pdk to manual no problem, just move the paddles and/or the pdk faceplate... mind you you may still have the pdk holes left in the steering wheel (which I've seen some steering wheel pros cover up + fill in)

eBay is your friend. in north america the wheel you want on eBay you can find for very cheap and in excellent condition.

i believe the panamera , cayenne, 911, boxter, cayman wheels are all the same so its interchangeable.

agreed, it belongs on a van/suv. its so very ugly + non-sporty.

do you have any photos of both wheels? I'm not sure that you can actually remove carbon off one wheel and put it onto another - id guess they CF would get destroyed during the removal process.
