♦ Sonic MS | Sneak Peak - Verstraβe Extended DCT Shifter Paddles

Greetings Gents,

Just wanted to share some pre-production pictures of the latest Verstraβe product offering. Note that these pics show them in an unfinished brushed aluminum state.



Extended DCT Shifter Paddles for E9X M3.

Manufactured out of T6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum utilizing the same method as the Verstraβe Motorsport Technik wheel spacers.



These shifter paddles extend quite a bit from the stock paddles - allowing for easier shifts. The Verstraβe extended shifter paddles will be available in an anodized matte silver finish standard.

We need some input from you guys - additional color choices perhaps ?

In the meantime, enjoy the photos!







Thoughts & comments much appreciated !

these look great! but have 3 questions. are they direct pnp and could you give your feed back on the comfort and feel compared to oem (these have holes so im not sure how they will feel). lastly can you post comparison pics off the steering wheel side by side?

Those are pretty sweet. Mabye as a side product line you could make some carbon fiber ones like they have in formula 1. Just an idea.

Unfortunately this would raise the price exponentially and is not really feasible given our design.

Who needs illumination anyhow ? Left paddle for downshift, right for upshift...easy as pie. It's not like its 6MT
