Default Bat 997.1 TT

The car has 117k miles. Looks like it would take another 100k miles.
This is the car I would like to buy again and drive it everyday. Wish it was in a different color.

Interesting to see a high-miler for once, although the accident history will confound things a little. Lots of drama in the comments about a loose crank pulley and the usual BaT DME whinging, too.

I bought the car just waiting for them to do the repairs to the car (crank pulley pin and windshield)

Congrats! Looks like you scored a great driver and I look forward to your posts.

I won't weight in on the technicals of a 997.2 wheel conversion, but I will give my opinion on it. I considered this as I didn't like the 997.1 wheel particularly. After looking at the conversion requirements, I opted to have my 997tt when recovered by Dallas custom wheel. I now love the original wheel and the new leather is all I needed to make it happen. I had the thicker sport wheel to begin with, but you can thicken the wheel a bit and do any customizing.

My opinion, but I'd keep it stockZ. Save $1,000 or so and have it refurbished. Here's a pic of the old wheel and a few of the new wheel: Name:  photo540.jpg

I think itĺs pretty much plug and play. Been a bit since I read these but here you go.

Whoa, nice job they did on your wheel. Sorry for kind of highjacking this thread with an off topic item, but ...Do you think they could do leather over my steering wheel on my MB? The car came with this microfiber stuff instead of leather and it's way too slippery for me. I LOVE leather. I wanted a company to do leather over the microfiber portions only, but I'm not sure they can do this. I'm trying to buy a new wheel but the price went from $2200 to $4200 in the last 2 months from Mercedes. A company called Mercteil out of Europe can get it for maybe around $2500 but they've been out of stock for months. https://mercteil.com/en They're not even sure if they'll get access to more from MB or not.

Ughhh... It's not worth that much to me yet ($4000+ from the dealer, and there aren't any in the US or Europe now for them to sell me anyway). My local shop here in Rockville MD said it can't be done unless they do the entire wheel, even the bottom metal part, since the leather will slip and not stay in place?!?!
