If your unsure wether you have a heated wheel, feel behind the lower central spoke for a button there! - I know someone who didn't realise for years that they had a heated wheel having never noticed the button! Laughing

Have a look (or a feel) and report back!

But he now thinks there too soft and wants his bit of 4x2 back Floor Floor
Still funny 9k of carbon seats with a piece of plywood under to make them higher Floor Floor

Early Gen 2 Cars will switch on the wheel with the heated seats. My OPC said it was not possible. I’ve tried a 59 reg and it doesn’t do it.

Wheels with real paddles are not heated on the 997, just the multifunction wheel with buttons. Maybe the paddle wheel was retro fitted.

'Real' paddle steering wheel did come with the heated (button on bottom rear) option. I remember seeing it in an OPC mag/on-line after I had my non-heated one fitted! Mad

I last spoke to Porsche about it two years ago and there was no heated version. Cars are going in very soon and I’ll ask again.
