Just installed mine. I believe the hardest part is getting the air bag to separate. It takes time to hit those little plugs... Other then that, it was a straight forward swap. I got the gunmetal ones... I think it looks too dark with the BMW cf fake trim... Maybe silver would be better.

That's exactly how mine looks... Is it too dark for you?

SonicMS - Great design! I am definitely buying a pair as soon as I get back to the states.

Just wondering. Have you thought about wrapping these in leather? I would love to get these in Fox Red to match my interior

Just installed mine (gunmetal) kinda wish it was a little bit lighter in color. Love how it feels and looks but under sunlight it has a hint of green (am I going crazy) which I don't like.

Let me know if you want to switch to a different color. I can do an exchange for you.

Just installed mine today. Took longer to install than I would like to admit but am very happy with the results. Love the look and feel of the new paddles. Would highly recommend this product.

I've received several inquiries about this fitment and unfortunately they are not compatible with the 135i DCT right now. The possibility of making new paddles to fit your car is still in the talks and will be announced if/when this happens.
