(replace) Shift paddles (DKG)

Hello

On the website of CA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL LTD (www.ca-int.co.uk) I saw the these shift paddles = http://www.ca-int.co.uk/products-Y2F...faWQ9MTQz.html

Questions:
-Does somebody replace the original paddles with these bigger paddles?
-If yes: how is the difference?
-If yes: are they easy to fix?

Thank you very much for reply, regards
Thomas

Personally, I like the factory's paddle shifter better. Why? Those aftermarket shifters look like an eyesore.

I have them and think they look great, much easier to use too. They don't make my I's sore at all.

I'm not a fan. They get hot to touch and they don't match anything.

Hot to touch. No hotter than the stock ones. I bought the brushed aluminum ones and they match the brushed aluminum trim perfectly.

Do you have a set or are you one of those folks who "knows" somebody that does and they had all kinds of problems?
