Where are the DCT paddles from? Is there enough room to grip the wheel without the paddles getting in the way? I bought the EAS paddles and removed them less than 24 hours later because there was no place for your fingers and I don't even have big fingers.

The paddles feel good and there is enough room to grip the steering wheel. Got them from jbspeed one of the vendors here.

Nearly bought extended paddles till I read some reports that there isn't enough room between the paddles and steering wheel.

I'm in the same boat only I haven't removed mine. It's not an issue if you like to drive with your hands are at the 10 and 2 o'clock positions but if I drive at 9 and 3 then they touch my fingers (and I have slender fingers). You can forget using gloves at the 9 and 3 spots.

I be honest with you I don't seem to have an issue. I did a lot of research before I bought these. But this is only my Opinion

Honestly prefer 10n2 rather then 9n3 but again I tried every angle and I have not had an issue.

I installed the same paddles today as the OP but in gunmetal and there is a big difference between these and the EAS ones that I installed and removed in less than a day. I can fit my fingers between the wheel and paddles now so I can wrap my hands around the wheel at 10/2 or 9/3. I absolutely couldn't do that with the EAS paddles. I only drove it a short time after the install so I will post more tomorrow or the next day after some more driving.

Maybe if I get inspired I will put one EAS one on and one of these and take some pictures. I am very good at replacing them now and did this in my building driveway sitting in the driver's seat in under 30 minutes.

I have the turner extended paddles. Great pieces but I can vouch that the space is limited for your fingers. I typically only use the paddles on the track though so the tradeoff is fine by me.
