hey tom,

im pretty sure its the lighting/angle but the finished product will have smoother curve where the paddle contours? if you look at the 1st pic it looks bent where it contours.

also does it still provide the full "click" feeling like the oem paddles? im wondering if the depth of the click has changed due to being closer to the wheel.

lastly does it feel natural to the finger? the oem paddles stick out and when you reach over the wheel with a finger the paddle is right there. im curious to know if because it is contoured your finger has to reach "deeper" to shift.

don't mind my ocd

It costs ¥49000 that's about $500!!
But they buy it!

Would you consider doing a version for the 1 series DCT paddle shifters (61319241799)?

Not at all!

I've driven these for a few days now, I simply love the fee lof the new paddles. No more reaching, paddles are easy to find with the paddles sweeping from the 8-10 and 2-4 positions. The reliefs on the rear make it comfortable and easy for the fingers to find home position.

On the track, I often find myself switching back and forth from the paddles to the DCT shifter. I would say I use the paddles 95% of the time now.

The "click" is still there to confirm gear selection like OEM. I've literally been making people sit in the driver's seat here to get feedback on the paddle feel, it's unanimous that everyone likes it over OEM.

Appreciate the feedback! Reminds me of the Dixis version on the E46M3 SMG.

Possibly. We'll get the M3 applications rolled out first then look into other models.

It seems like most of the feedback is for version without holes. Is that going to be a option?

The only time I regret not purchasing a DCT is when I see a sweet set of aftermarket paddles.

Yes, I know... I'm pathetic.

For what it's worth, I would want to see them without the holes.

Count me in as interested if there was a set without holes drilled. Simply too aggressive for my interior.

Tom - I'll be dropping the car off for an install of recently purchased goodies and would love to add this to the list. Same black set that is on your shop car to match the pedals I currently have.

Gotcha, see you shortly.

In the meantime, we're going to get started on production. Look for a thread in the vendor's section this week.

Tom,
Are you going to answer the question for a option without holes? Seems the majority have asked for that and you are asking for feedback, but not answering us. Forgive me if I missed your answer.
