Decided to move from the multifunction steering wheel to the sport design in my PDK Cayman.

Interior is agate gray. Knowing that the airbag (also agate gray) will be moving to the new steering wheel, what are thoughts on going with a black leather wheel?

Currently the steering column surround is black, as well as the floor mats and some parts of the trim and dash.

Think black would look right, or do I need to go agate gray on the wheel?

Personally, I always prefer a black wheel regardless of interior color. so I'd vote for black.

Go black. It'll contrast nicely with the rest of the interior.

Thanks for the input. Black it is.

I'm planning to have the dealership do this. They quoted me $1417 for parts, $400 for installation. (includes leather sport design wheel as well as adding the multifunction stalk to the steering column)

Whew...congrats.. Just know that you can install that wheel yourself for 10-12 minutes of effort. That's how long it took me and many others. Just an FYI on that install price. That's steep. But you will love the results. Congrats again.

Thanks for the thought. I'd read about changing the wheel itself, and it seems pretty easy. But moving from a multifunction wheel to sport design wheel on PDK requires a stalk to be added to the steering column, as well as ECU programming.

Do you think the stalk work is something DIYers can tackle? I'd then need only take it to the dealer for programming.

I didn't catch that. No...I take my comment back. That's some effort. Enjoy the results!!!
