Default .2RS WP Carbon Steering Wheel

Hi,,
Out of all the WP 2RS's and the few pictures available for the WP 3RS.2, none of the Steering Wheels have carbon fiber trims..
Although the WP specs options at the website mentions: 'Steering wheel trim and gearshift paddles in carbon fiber'
Any info about this?
Thanks!
Wael

Learned the answer to this when trying to spec a custom wheel on my GT3. The carbon faceplate for the WP steering wheel is facing production problems and will not be installed on WP cars at time of production. Instead, owners will receive an "IOU" of sorts. When available, the faceplates will be sent to dealers and installed post-purchase.

Hereĺs proof that indeed Porsche is running into supply issues and delivering cars without WP pieces.
