ArneR is an unknown quantity at this point
Are there any differences between the interior bits on a 2010 and a 2014? I found a site that sells carbon interior for the 2014, but they told me it will not fit my 2010? Any input on that?

Hi,
I just checked the Tequipment catalog and there is no difference between 2010 and 2014 but many options depending on interior options (rear AC, rear console, memory seat).

I have seen videos on here with the vents being changed somewhere and they look like they just pop off if you take the vents out.

I replaced the piano black trim and replaced it with carbon fibre on my GTS, very happy with the result.
It took quite a bit of effort to take out the center piece, you need to take the radio module partly out, as well as the a/c vents. I found a tutorial online, I will check my bookmarks and see if I can find it. It is a bit of an effort, and you need to have set of 'trim removal tools' as well as the appropiate screwdrivers with hex heads.
I am not a technical person, if I can do it, you can do it. And turbo turbo , my black trim is still available.

Pieter97,
how did you deal with the gear shift and Surrounding trim? I understand the vent and radio/PCM part, but the gear shift and its surrounding trim have me concerned.
thanks

the top of the gear shift can be turned 45 degrees and comes off, with a good set of trim removal tools the back side of the center console will come off.
If you go to: https://workshop-manuals.com/porsche...entre_console/ and you simply 'click' on the subsequent pages 5248, 5249 etcetera you get a pretty clear picture of where the screws are hidden. Good luck, and if I can do it, you can.

....First off, you need these special tools to remove the A/C vents then you need to remove the Radio head unit. You wont find these special tools for the vents anywhere except the dealer. Trying to remove the vents without the tools will break them.

Once you get the radio out, then you can proceed to remove the following.



1. Shifter **** needs to be removed, Twist locking mechanism at bottom of selector **** by 45 degrees to the right and pull selector **** up and off.

2.Now use a plastic lever with a 90 degree L hook on the end. Insert this in the shifter console hole with tip facing the front .

3. Pull up with lots of force to remove the shifter console, and then you will remove the console switch packs

4. there are 2 screws at the front of the console and the 2 in the oddments tray, You also need to remove these 2 side trims at the front of the console.

5. The console comes up and pull to the rear.

The carbon fiber looks tempting, but I have the wood finish on my steering wheel too.....I would need a new steering wheel to match........
