Having looked at a few cars, I have noticed the 997 Turbo can have either a round airbag type steering wheel which to me, looks better and more sporty or a triangle airbag look one.

Is one just simply an optional extra or a multi function version etc ?

The 997.2 Turbos come with the round center and either buttons or paddles... The buttons suck big time but are easily changed to a paddle one Smile

The triangular one is the optional MF wheel. Never liked the look of it and when I drove a car with one, kept turning the volume up/down and skipping CD tracks. The round one is better (and what I have) but not as nice as the Gen2/991 one member 'Kam' has that I'm thinking of swapping to.

I went from the triangle to the GEN 2 round mf not sure what the options were for the turbo but much more choice now with the GEN 2 and 991 wheels. Boba is this part of your upgrades along with the carbon buckets?

This is Kam's wheel, and the type that I will get round to buying sometime soon (but leather and without the ring).

Mine has this wheel, which was down on the original spec sheet as an optional extra "thicker sports steering wheel", although to me its very thin, certainly half the thickness of modern wheels you get in bmw`s/audi`s etc.

Hi mate, i have got an identical car to you i think 1.5 black/black and have the triangle wheel.

Could you put me in touch with who you did yours through? I am in North Yorkshire too.

Cheers in advance.

Hi mate I did it diy and had my Indy re program the new steering wheel interface. It's easy really and I'd be more than happy to help! Is yours multi function?

997.1
Std wheel has triangular airbag
Sport wheel has round airbag
MF wheel is triangular, but with annoying MF controls.

There are also the button tip versions but the rate they're swapped out, most are in landfill.

Gen 2 airbags all round but also offered with more options - pdk, mf etc.

Hi All,
Bit late I know but this looks encouraging for me that wants to change my 997.1 triangle wheel to the a circular sports wheel like the above pictures.

Has it actually been done?

And

What are the things to be aware of.
