SRT8 Steering Wheel into 2011s?
 
Think this will be possible? Milous? Would love to have paddle shifters so I don't have to take/leave my hand off the steering wheel during spirited driving.

Soon there's going to be paddle shifters in a Prius..

It could be possible as long as all the buttons on the steering wheel match up and you have the wiring in place for the computer to recognize the paddle inputs. But I bet it's not cheap. Fun to think about, though!

I'd love to do it even without the paddle shifters. It looks spectacular with the extra shape grips and angles, and as a bonus, cuts down on the crazy rabbit effect.

I am 100% sure the wheel itself will swap over...not sure about the paddle's...I highly doubtit would be easy.

If the plastic on the back of the srt8 steering wheel is finished better I would be interested in this. Don't care about the paddle shifters...they are stupid. We never use them on our G37S.

It will probably be a difficult if not impossible swap due to the electronics/bus integration.

Thanks Milous! You wouldn't happen to have seen a diagram to tell if the paddles are integrated with the steering wheel, or if we could possibly swap just the steering wheel alone?

Grab a few mind altering substances since it's Friday night, and stare at that second dash photo for a minute or two.
