Popular Post Windymiller Posted November 6, 2019 Popular Post Share Posted November 6, 2019 (edited) So I’ve wanted the fancy-pants (shiny metal 3-spoke) sports design steering wheel for my manual 987 since buying the car in 2017, but always thought it was a nice to have rather than ‘need to have’, and therefore set about some good old fashioned saving for it via a rather nice personalised ‘piggy bank’ pot my kids got me one Xmas, into which £2 & £1 coins go. I reckon it might hold £800-£1000 once full. When I started saving the sports design wheel from design911 was £650 + 20% VAT. 2018 it was on at ~£750 +VAT. Earlier this year it was up around £900 +VAT. Now my pots almost full I go online to buy it and it’s at £1065 +VAT!!!!! 😮 Holy fushizzle 😱 i really want the wheel, but nearly £1300 for a steering wheel (not including the airbag module) is ridiculous. Especially when I believe it was just a £150 option box ‘back in the day’ (why oh why didn’t everyone just tick it....?). As id also like a suspension upgrade next year I’m suddenly thinking - would it be ‘cheaper’ to buy a 987 R that already has the sports design wheel and the sportier suspension especially as autotrader had a stunning grey manual one with 36k miles on this week for ‘only’ £38k (queue blokenomics man-maths moment to justify such an upgrade to myself and SWMBO) 🤔 Discuss.... 😉😁 Edited November 6, 2019 by Windymiller 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
