Bat-looking dash piece


Recommended Posts

I am getting that doncapecod bug. I ordered the trim piece (that looks like a bat) that fits in the lowermost portion of the middle dash and I am wondering if its an easy DIY thing and perhaps some step-by-step instructions. I ordered from UK prestige parts, and it has the PORSCHE logo on it. I think it will look cool. Thanks a lot!

Don't pry it. stick your hand in the storage tray and pull it right our. Then you have access to the batwing where you can push it out evenly. It's just plastic.

If you get a plain silver one you can put on any color PORSCHE logo by buying a set of brake caliper decals....just a thought. I had a silver logo on a CF batwing, but changed to the "911" I put the silver PORSCHE logo on the CF piece.

Kirby,

There are at least 6 different part numbers depending on what you want. A plain (no switches) black one like in Don's pic, a 2 switch version, a 4 switch version, and various leather or CF trims. Tell me what you want and I'll post the part number.

I am in the process of changing mine at the moment. I got a quote of £69 from my porsche dealer for a boxster red one covered in leather. The dealers don't do any other coloured variants. You can only get plain black plastic ones otherwise for £3. I decided to buy one of these and customise it myself-it cant be that difficult to spray paint it and add a decal like Don has!!

Hi, the 996 Millennium Edition has a natural brown leather one with "911" on it, if that helps...

As I do more mods I find that having a picture of the back of a trim piece helps a lot in trying to figure out where to pull, snap, pry, etc. I got my new batwing today so I'm including a pic of the back, maybe it'll help someone when they are doing their own projects:
