Will a Tiptronic 996 3spoke steering wheel fit a manual car?

Yes to everything.

here is a guide to using the buttons for a stereo, on a 993 with sony radio but should be the same for 996:

Not sure if you can control the standard radios like this.

You will find the airbag is the most expensive bit - best to find a wheel with airbag unless you can reuse yours.

Airbag unit is about £1,100 from your OPC. Best to find a complete wheel or swap across the unit from your existing wheel if the colour matches.

Tedzwedz - I have a spare manual wheel and a spare tiptronic wheel if you're interested! Both in Metropole Blue but could easily be re-trimmed for not a huge sum of money. One pair of buttons are broken (plastic snapped) on the tiptronic wheel, so wouldn't be asking for much money.

Hi PJ, what sort of money are you talking about, for the non tiptronic??

Kind regards
