Gt3 Alcatara Package Diy Available ?


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

The car arrived. I took some pictures I'd like to post.

Do you know an easy way to post pictures ?

Also, I'd like to install the GT3RS Alcantara Package.

Is it easy to install or is it required to be done by my dealer ?

My main problem is that there is a GPS alarm which will complicate a bit the installation.

For the steering wheel, do I need to disconnect the battery, for the airbag ? :drive:

The dealer is asking 1100 euro for the package, and Carnewal 790 euro (I live in Belgium :king: , so they are close). I don't feel comfortable to ask my dealer to install the parts purchased at Carnewal.

Since I am not that stupid with mechanic work, I am thinking to do it by myself, but never worked on a porsche. :cursing:

any pictures, any list of tools, DIY ???

thanks for your help

I don't remember what's involved in the package. I know there are seats and a steering wheel but what else? If you search the archives, I know you will find a DIY for the seats, which are easy. The steering wheel DIY is available on DVD from Toolpants, look under the Special Offers above. If the shifter is involved, that is on the DVD too.

thanks for your help.

Finally, my dealer proposed to do the job. :eek:

The only problem is that the parts are b.o. (back order) :cursing:

They will deliver the car without the alcantara package. Not a big deal.
