Can a 6speed Peformance Wheel be Modified for DCT?

Like the title says, I am wondering if anyone has done this? I've tried searching for a DCT wheel with white stitching and not the tri stitched "M" pattern but have learned they did not make one.

Hmmmm... I hope I'm right! My understanding is that the Steptronic and DCT paddles are interchangeable. Which would make the steering wheel compatible with both. I would email the vendors on my links to confirm.

The links you provided do say "Steptronic/DCT" so if it isn't compatable they are pretty misleading by saying that. I'll shoot them an email and see what they say.

Just stumbled across this picture of a car with the wheel you want installed.
