Hi Phil,
Thanks for the reply thumbsup

Yes i want to try to install the newer MF steering wheel with flaps on the rear side, but !! for now i already have a MF steering wheel in my car, but it's a full black steering wheel and i don't like it...
So do you think i still need this adapter because i already have a MF steering wheel ?
Thx
Stefan

99% sure yes, but we just need someone to try it and confirm Grin The connections/wheel look identical.

I cant see how anything would be different.

Heres' one fitted to a 987.2 Boxster (with the Macan airbag)

Stefan

The Macan wheel should work okay. In fact, reading between the lines, pretty much any of the more modern wheels (eg Panamera style) can be made to work with varying degrees of functionality. Paul Li at GPS is very helpful and will put you right.

I am about to do just this - namely fit a Macan MF wheel in place of my existing non-heated 991.1 MF wheel - if you want to compare notes. I have the wheel already and the GPS kit was ordered late yesterday (Tuesday) and I've just heard from DHL that it will be delivered next Monday.

I am still looking for a Porsche specialist to do it for me but if I can't find someone I will have to find time to do it myself.

Watching with interest as I also have had a Macan steering wheel offered to me and have been looking at the GPS website - no great rush but if anyone has an airbag or the correct GPS adapter sitting around feel free to get in touch.

I have always wanted a paddle shift multi function wheel so looking forward to replacing the 997.2 m/f wheel - mine incidentally has been rewired to operate like a paddle shift wheel pull left for downshift, pull right for upshift - both push controls have been disabled.

The 997.2 wheel will prob be sold afterwards to help fund the new version.

Hi Kal,
Just look for a new or used sports steering wheel you want to install in your car on e-bay coming from a 991.2 model like i did, or from the new model panamera, send the picture to Paul lee and he wil get back to you in a flash by e-mail, he can send you the link from the product you need, that's it...
He does fabricate the new wiring for the steering wheel and the adapters you need...
He si a very helpfull guy so you only need to ask him..

Kind regards
Stefan
