Good idea on making the paddles longer. But why have them cut-out in the centers? Wouldn't it be more functionally to have them filled (like stock) that way your figure doesn't accidentally slept through the cut-out?

He raises a good point. Have you test fitted them w/o the cutouts? Would be nice if we have the option of getting them in a solid paddle.

Great new mod! They look great however, agree on feedback about the cutouts - can we get solid ones too please? for colors, they would look great in matte black.. but if I were to get these, I'd get brushed alum.

I dont understand the problem with the cutouts. I use my index fingers to shift and just tap the outer most edge of the paddle. Its not like you need to pull the paddle with your whole hand to shift, they require very little input to function. I personally want the cut outs...I like the look a lot

Darwin,

Can these be retrofitted to a 2007 335i steptronic msport wheel that has push/pull paddles?
btw, see you soon for springs

Wonder how these would look in brushed tinted/or clear with LeMans Blue on the outside and inside edges and as the "+" and "-"?

Cal- think this could be done?

Oh geez these will be great! I'm used to the size of the paddles on a 430. It was awkward downsizing to the M3 when I got mine. Looking forward to these!!

^ First of all, i think this is the first time Jaypod has had anything remotely nice to say about the DCT.

This looks like a great mod! I've been waiting for something like this for a while!

This can be done...but that's alot of masking involved...price will go up quite a bit to do this custom finish.
