Default 991.2 steering wheel on 997.2???

Has anyone done this swap? I know I will have to purchase a new 991.2 airbag and a new 991.2 steering wheel. I really want a 991.2 steering wheel with multifunction controls. If this doesn't work I'm just going to do a 997.2 multifunction wheel.

Thoughts? Comments?

See this thread:

You probably need the 997.2 control module.

OP you should already have the 997.2 module so you would just a little bit of PIWIS coding and thats about it + the module from the guy on the FB group - many ppl here have bought and and are running the 991.2 wheel with MF on the 991.1/997.2/997.1 with all buttons fully functional

Got a link for the FB group and the person's name? Interested in this... I have that weird 2009 manual wheel without MF which is the 997.1 wheel - the one year where it's a 997.2 but with the 997.1 wheel.

Thanks for all of the input guys. Suncoast is the way to go if you want a stock 991.2 MF Steering wheel.
Sport wheel in leather multi-function $995
991.2 Airbag (Leather) $1450
GPS Adapter from Yuan Li $299

So, all in and done, approximately $2744 + about 2 hours of diy time. Of course, I will still have to pay to have it programmed since I didn't have multi-function to begin with. I'm pretty sure that Stahl Motorsports in WPB has a PIWIS and I would much rather have them give it a try than Braman Porsche. I may also try Champion Porsche in Coconut Creek, they seem to be much more in tune with mods than Braman.

Question would be, is it really worth doing steering wheel upgrade for $2700+ ?

i don't think its that much, you can get mint eBay 991.2 wheels for 600-800.

don't forget when selling your current airbag + wheel that will also reduce your total cost of the upgrade as well.

if you are buying absolutely brand new wheel + parts then yes it would get very very expensive.
