Steering wheel replacement

I'm thinking of replacing the current steering wheel I have, which a black 4-spoke, with this one

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2451998566&category=33704

Will it fit the Boxster?

Not sure on fitment, but if you're replacing it then why not got with a three spoke? They look much nicer.

I don't think that steering wheel fits in ANY boxster! At least if it does, its a grave mistake!!! Come on! Flamingo pink???

Lol. I thought flamingo red was the Boxster red. I want to get a 3-spoke wheel but haven't found the matching color yet.

993/986/996 steering wheels all fit each other.

1995 993's require an adaptor kit (for the electronics I believe) to fit the 986/996 wheels. All other 993 years and models will work. Obviously, Tip wheels are different, so make sure you get the right type of wheel for your car.

There is an early 993 retrofit kit for the tip shift buttons on a 4 spoke.
