Hi guys,

I've just purchased some Amg paddles for the tip conversion.

Is there a decent guide DIY or anyone recommend someone around South Yorkshire

Cheers
 
Its in the stickies on the 996 section I think but in any case it's easily searchable.Super easy DIY BTW

Cracking 🤘
 
and its an excellent mod.

I've no idea why Porsche put those stupid switches on instead.
 
Keen to know which AMG paddles you chose and source. I've struggled to find the specific paddles mentioned in some of the 'how to" threads.

I've bought some of these, not sure if they fit

I have A45 paddles which look quite different to those.

I think the part number is A171 267 00 46

Yeah think I ordered the incorrect pair
 
The switches are fairly simple - you just splice the connection from your buttons (two wires, one for up and one for down) into the same for the new paddles. The paddles need to be able to mount correctly on the back of the steering wheel, I feel like the ones you ordered won't work.

I ended up with the metal amg paddles and they feel great
 
I've just ordered a set from MB Nottingham, a Mercedes Independent, £165 delivered using the part number supplied by barryrs (thanks for posting). Adam in Parts was very helpful.
