I've got to have that steering wheel (minus the flappies obviously). Looks so much nicer than mine!

I think the steering wheel and buckets might be the only things I like about the interior Get Me Coat

Yes, that interior is far too nice for a 'track car'......

Even though it's quicker round a track then it's manual ex-counterparts!

I do I do I do! That RS4.0 GT3 interior is perfection as far as I am concerned.

Loving the buzz Laughing

Roro: how about a group buy on the wheel, we may get the price down to, oh, say £1500...

Still looks horny in red Thumb

I did actually get a quote on the RS4.0 steering wheel only a few weeks ago - £2,220 including VAT!

I could actually. But, almost worth joing the Porche club for the 10% discount Laughing

For special items and the smallest items, always go direct for the best price.

Errrrr, how do I say this....I have a "friend" ...who has the same name....who might be a member of the other lot.... Embarassed

In my friends defence, he joined beciase of the well organised trachk days, honest...

Not that I would actually spend c£1k on a steering wheel.

I just got a quote from an OPC, price is 2820 inc VAT + fitting which would probably be about 150 + VAT. However like you say knock off about £300 for PCGB membership.

The price is clearly a deterrent, to stop paupers like me getting a RS4.0 wheel and sticking it on an older GT3 Rolling Eyes

Does anyone know what model this steering wheel is? I'll get a quote for a manual version - might buy it and get it retrimmed and beefed up RS-stylee.

I really hate my steering wheel, have done ever since I bought the car!

Why not get a PDK sports wheel instead? Ok so it's clad in leather rather than alcantara, nor will it have the coloured top centre line, but is nonetheless very similar... Question

Yep, that's what I want to explore - I'll get it retrimmed in alcantara (red and black probably, then get the gear lever redone in red alcantara to match Grin )

Just need to know what the model number / name is of that steering wheel so I can get a quote... If anybody knows please PM me (.... seem to have gone off topic here... !)

2010 Porsche 997 GT3 RS

PostPosted: Sat Mar 09, 2013 8:11 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

...Back on topic, technology moves the game on again...and apparently,
in every way the new model is quicker than all of the previous normally
asprated GT cars...inc the 4.0L Rolling Eyes.....

Is it more fun to drive ?...more involving ?...more fun ?..probably not,
but it's ''new'', and for that reason it'll sell. I made the call to my OPC,
who very kindly gave me a couple of extra days to get my deposit in
ahead of them opening the flood gates next Monday...
I'm going to sit tight and wait for a 997 GT2 RS...but hey, they're fetching
huge money..apparently one changed hands this week for £180k !!. Now,
that's light years too much money....crazy price, and clearly a long term
investment for someone.

I've apparently got the no1 birth for the next RS when it comes out...so who knows ?.. Grin
