As the thread title says, I’m looking to fit paddles to my 997 turbo tip. I had this mod on my 996 turbo and loved it. Hence why I’d like it again.

I’ve bought the AMG paddles, a manual 997 GT3 wheel and sourced the correct airbag. But.....the work on this on my 996 turbo was carried out by Medicus. Sadly he has departed these shores and I’ve lost his email. So can anyone either let me know someone who can do the mod for a decent price, or provide some advice on how I can do this myself? Question

I think I read that it’s much more complicated to do on a 997 than the 996 Question

I think the poster is asking about how to put the AMG paddles on the back of a 997.1 wheel?

If so, I did this and it isn't so hard. There really severall posts including the wiring detail in the forum. If you search under my name you will find a couple with detailed instructions.

Important to note is that with the 996 wheel, the paddles fitted really well - zero gaps at the back.

With the 997 there will be a gap (it's too tight) but the end result is still very good.

If you are struggling PM me and I will help you find the posts.

Reading it I’m wondering if it’s beyond my competence. But tempted to still have a go. Surprised

Interesting point about the fitting of the switches, no gaps on the 996 wheel, I have fitted them to my 996 wheel and i have gaps at the bact running along he length of the switch.
Have i done something wrong ?

Hi Steve - I saw a couple of images of them flush at the back - but you don't see the back anyhow....
