I just installed the paddles myself. I like how they feel. Did you notice a slight variation in the surface of the finish where the paddles curve towards the driver?

The blue accents just takes your pieces to another level. Very nicely done.

Have you thought about an iND interior trim at all? Maybe too gaudy since I see you are subtle but my M3 (sold to a friend) has the LeMans inside and it look exceptional. It had the Carbon Leather before. Huge difference and since LeMans inside without too much of a light source is not that bright it doesn't knock you off your feet.

The look is killer! Where did you purchase these from? GTM, BMWPedals? Do the extended paddles have a shorter throw?

I bought mine from EAS. Not a major issue with the finish but its there on mine. Mine don't have the holes so the surface is more visible.

Looks great! I can't wait to install mine, the paddles are so much bigger. I am sure that will help at the Nurburgring. Lets get on that trip for the 21st, I don't want to be the only ///M there surrounded by Subaru's
