Default 997.1 to 997.2 Steering wheel Swap Done!

Well after months of research and debating over more bang for your buck mods I did it. Wifes Christmas present to me and the car. Thanks to those who provided input, I know its a "small" mod but it's completely changed the feel of the car. The interior looks and feel richer. Big thanks to Suncoast (Ric) and the Livermore Porsche Serivce Crew (Anthony Sunder and John B are awesome) Before and after pics.

If anyone is interested in my OEM wheel let me know. Cheers!

looking good Tom. excellent upgrade, if I didn't already have the fat steering wheel on my car this thread would have cost me another couple of grand (this MB is really not good for my wallet)

Oh wow. Looks spectacular. Is your PCM painted or funny angle? Looks like a perfect match!

Very nice. I also have the .1 MF wheel (triangular air bag) on my .2 car and would like to do this mod. But damn, it's going to cost >$2k. dave
