Big thanks to Suncoast (Ric) and the Livermore Porsche Serivce Crew (Anthony Sunder and John B are awesome) Before and after pics.

If anyone is interested in my OEM wheel let me know. Cheers!
Looks like a different car - very nice.

After the module swap different options came up in the piwis system and they were able to code the horn and airbag. Do you have an indy shop near you. I would try that rout first if you really want the wheel.
Hope this helps
Cheers
+1 Confirm which module you purchased, or you dealer does not know what to do.

I just bought a 2009 997.2 with the Triangular multifunction wheel (same as original posters). I assume I do not need a new control module - correct?

I don't know if I can bite the bullet on this upgrade cost but I hate the current wheel, particularly its plastic silver button surrounds and think it looks very cheap.

My dealer basically had to reboot and go through this operation. Sounds complicated but it took less than hour.

Note- this process was requried to enable mulitifuction controls. If you do not have MF its plug and play.
Could you details out exactly what's required? What steering wheel, control module, programming, steps?

Thanks

Sure I've listed the part numbers on page 2 of the thread.

997-347-803-51-A34 - black wheel with grey face ľ 800.00
997-613-463-01-5Q0 - multifunction black face - 533
997-803-089-12-A34 - black airbag in leather not leatherette 946.00
997-613-289-01- steering control module 220.00


I can't speak to the programming as it was done at dealer.

You keep 100% OEM plug and play capabilities and just trade in your core wheel. I've got one and love the design and feel, excellent leather quality at a fraction of Porsche prices.
OEM looks so much better than those options.

But you have to buy a new round airbag , back in 2012 I found mine over ebay.

This is what you need :

Sometimes you can find them used :

Very easy to install both wheel and airbag.

After it's in you go to your friendly Porsche dealer and request he activates 'multi function steering wheel' through Piwis.
Disregard the frowns and disbelief, just ask nice and smile. After that your horn will work and off you go



Maybe, I do not know, you can just buy a new airbag cover and use your old airbag in this new cover. I never tried nor would I by inclined to do so. But maybe someone in your circle of friends can ?

I need this in my life. Beyond jealous. Best looking steering wheel porsche makes.

Default Wheel swap

Sorry for resurrecting this thread but need some feedback after I installed a 997.2 Sport Design steering wheel into my 997.1 Turbo. I had it programmed for a multifunctional steering wheel for the horn to work. Good news is that the horn works now; however, when I turn off the car, the horn beeps once. Anybody run into this challenge and have a solution?

So you did not need to change out the steering wheel control unit?

You have a non-multifunction steeringwheel, but you had to code that in to make the horn work?

I have a 997.2 with the old style steering wheel.. Swapped it with a 997.2 new style sport steering wheel.

The horn doesnt work

It can probably be fixed with a piwis. Technically it should work without programming though. .2 to.2 should be a cake swap.

Right. I didn't swap the control unit. Only programming and horn worked

Ok, and the trick in piwis was to code you non multifunction wheel as it was a multifunction wheel, then the horn worked?

Yes. I just told the tech to program using PIWIS for multi function wheel and worked right away.

This thread is not good for my bank account... So close to doing the swap several times.

Just wondering, are the silver parts real metal or plastic?
