yeah, you should be able to just take off the wires and locate them to a new switch somewhere else....

do you think i could order that new tiptronic shift knob from porsche though?? im not sure.
i suppose that would be easier than trying to screw with the manual knob right??

I am confused as to which of the two shifter pics you posted...that you are wanting to install :confused:

You won't be able to use the manual shift knob (in the first pic), but you CAN use the automatic knob (second pic)...wiring should be straightforward AS LONG AS there's an overdrive button on the Porsche knob (which should be located on the right side of the knob and not visible in the pic)...Porsche WILL be able to order you an automatic shift knob, but I guarantee it will be EXPENSIVE!

I posted a detailed how-to about removing the ATX shift knob without damaging anything, and replacement a while back. If I wasn't on the world's slowest connection, I'd search it for you, but due to the 10min per page load time, can someone else help with this one?
