I bought the shifter today... part number 997 424 010 91 as mentioned above... circa £275. Now I'm not sure if I should just do the shifter swap or fit a set of cup cables at the same time while I'm in there... Dont know Dont know Dont know

I've just fitted mine, it's night and day compared to the old one. Gone is the sloppy, lazy gear change, replaced by a shortened rifle bolt action. Well worth the money.

Good news! How did the fitting go? Is it an easy job? Have you tried it with cup cables?

Was very easy, I've had the centre console out before to fit the CD holder delete so that took no time at all, mark up the cables so you know where to put them in the new shifter, unbolt the old one, bolt the new one in, re attach the cables and replace the centre console. Very easy.
I've not tried with the Cup cables, I've decided to stick with the standard ones for now.

Well done Is there any noticeable side to side play in the gear knob when
gear is selected?

Just as a way of FYI Cup cables or any replacement cables is a bit more of a job and although straightforward, not the easiest job in the world. In a 996 (997 probably similar) it means removing the rubber bung in the centre console, cutting the wires out of the bung, replacing them with the Cup cables and re-inserting the bung into the hole - awkward and fiddly.

I re-used the sound deadening around the cables as I heard of the additional transmission of noise sound/vibration from replacement cables (just zip tied the old stuff back on). You have to re-use the bung as it is part of the original cables but does not come with Cup cables or the Numeric Racing ones I used.

Yep! I followed this dead easy. The fiddly part is the console, but I was taking that out to paint anyway.
