    Installing 981 Sport Design Steering Wheel?

    Hello all. I'm considering replacing my Multi-Function steering wheel with a Sport Design steering wheel. It would also entail installing a multi-function stalk.

    Has anyone had a dealer do this, and if so, what am I looking at for the total cost (parts + labor)?

    Are you doing this for the looks or the paddles?

    The Sports Design looks the best, but you can install the paddles aftermarket.

    My dealer quoted around $1,000 for a non-multifunction to sport design swap... The multifunction would require some reprogramming, so plan on about $1,200.

    Is $1200 inclusive of parts and labor?

    That's true, and it's a valid suggestion. I tend to not want to go aftermarket, though...primarily because I wonder how it would affect resale.

    For paddles, I doubt anybody would knock you for that, especially if you have the sport design wheel. Now a aftermarket radio or seats is something else.
