99 is for both switches correct as it gives you the option of "1" for 99$... one means a pair of two correct?

also read removing these buttons is not a simple DIY as they suggest... anyone do it?

What's a Carrera Boxster ?


If I like the button replacements, I'll get some caps

Sure, the easiest way is to follow this by tye:
https://rennlist.com/forums/diy-subm...e-removal.html

Then to remove the ac panel there are 2 tabs which you need to push in L&R side and then the panel just slides out, disconnect & away you go.

It's $99 for the pair. This is a pretty good deal as Sticky No More charges $150 and require a core return IIRC.

I painted mine all black with plasti-dip and it looks decent. But for this pricee it's an easy, permanent and affordable solution.
