They both looks good, but gunmetal is the most popular one. either color you can't go wrong with it.

The Monte Carlo looks nice. I think the blue that we talked about will look as good with black +,-'s.... I will contact u in next few days and get that ordered.
U think this color is similar to performance steering blue stripe???maybe it's just lighting....

The matte black and gun metal looks fabulous but get silver or something bright to make the paddle shifters stand out so people can see them when they look in your car or inside the cabin

Okay I can't even get past the first step, is there a certain angle you should be holding your screwdriver? I can't seem to find the clip for the airbag release.

It's not visible at all... at least it wasn't on mine.. you kind of have to feel it around until you see the hole... It doesn't look cut or anything until you start putting screwdriver in.

I know where the hole is at, getting the airbag release clips are tricky. Any tips on pushing those in?

I did it on an angle... towards the air bag more ... Keep feeling it around until you feel a little resistance... almost like a click... then just pull that side and go to the other. The left side was a lot easier for me then the right.

Well, I was finally able to take the airbag out with this thread, I was holding the screwdriver completely up and down.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=617431

Once installed, my + paddle stopped working, so that took a bit of fixing. After a little bit of work, I got it to work perfectly.

I must say, these paddles are 200% improvement over the OEM paddles. Great job Sonic!

It only worked when pressing the very top of the paddle. I took it apart again and bent the 2 contact's a little more so they would contact the chip when the paddle is pressed from anywhere.

No problems since.

For those that have had the brushed versions, do the grooved go away over time? My wedding band had brushed grooves, and over time they have disappeared. Wondering if this would also happen with extended use of the paddles.

What groove are you referring to? You mean the chamfered edges?
In any event, unless your skin is like 100 grit sandpaper...it should be fine.
