Yeah the paddle shifter boss is about 20mm and is bolted directly behind the steering wheel. I personally prefer the wheel being a bit closer so don't see it as a problem. The indicators still self cancel. There is no difference between the smoothness of the shift on the paddles and the box. If anything it feels nicer on the paddles as they don't have a clunky feel like the box.

Hello, I have been following this thread with interest as I have thought about making a steering wheel mounted tiptronic switch set up for my 964. I did not know the after market paddles product existed. I would like to retain the original steering wheel though. Do you think the Works Bell unit would fit with the standard 964 steering wheel? Cheers.

I can't see how you would mount these with the standard wheel as the standard wheel is mounted on the spline on the column and the paddle shifter is mounted on a 6 bolt momo or nardi bolt pattern. Works bell do produce a dash mounted paddle shift kit (not sure if they do them for other models though):

Years ago, I contemplated doing this mod on another vehicle. I came across this thread, and although it is done on a Lincoln it would still applies here. Just get the BMW SMG paddles, fit them to the back of your stock steering wheel, and connect as highlighted on page 1 of this thread. The only tricky part may be getting past the clock spring, other than that pretty simple and OE looking.

Hello. I am in the process of installing a Works Bell paddle shifter in my 1991 964 which has an air bag. I just ordered a Momo competition steering wheel with hub adapter and a Porsche emblem horn button. I ordered a Works Bell universal paddle shifter from Tunersgroup.com. They are in Australia and will be drop ship from Japan which have them in stock. The US price with shipping is $348. The Tunersgroup also advertise a direct fit paddle shifter for a stock 964 steering wheel. kit.http://www.tunersgroup.com/Online_St...dle_shift.html I opted for a Momo wheel instead. From what I understand, after my install the air bag light will be on. Does anybody know how to turn it off

Turning off the airbag light is easy
You need to plug in a resistance
It is actually a Porsche part used for the 964 RS
You can find the part number easy if you do a search on rennlist

Thanks MacFever. I realize now that I need Porsche pn 92861222000 air bag bridge adapter to delete the SRS warning light. I found I will also need Porsche pn 96465210400 horn contact for the horn to work. These items are not expensive but I am having problems finding them available without ordering them directly from Porsche which I am going to do.

So with a momo wheel, Momo hub adapter #7004 and the Bell Works paddle shifter which is 20mm in depth I may find my steering wheel further away which from what I understand is not so bad for our cars. But I can always modify the hub adapter making it more shorter from what I have learned from other members. I am really looking foward to this project

Yes getting the steering closer is a very good thing, the original wheel is way too much against the dashboard like an old VW Beetle ...
Please let me know how it goes with your install especially the paddles (with pictures plaese ;-)

Yes, I just got off the phone with Jack Daniels Porsche dealer out of NJ to order the above mentioned parts. He said they are available here in the US warehouse and he will be shipping them to me when they arrive @ $90. with shipping. I am very happy and can give the total accout of this process upon completion.

Alivreal. I did a Google search and Ebay search for your items and could not find anything in the UK. There are plenty of places to buy those items here in the US and thats what I would do.

I am getting my parts together slowly and when I'm finished I can show pictures and give details if anybody wants.
