DCT Paddle Shifter Change Up Questions

Curious: Has anyone swapped out their OEM paddle shifters for billet style aluminum ones? If so, what type did you install? Lastly how much of a pain is the install- considering the wheel removal and that little ball bearing in there (somewhere) . Thanks!

It's not that hard. You don't have to take the wheel off and yes the bearing is something you can't loose. But overall it's a 2 out of 5 difficulty.

Verstrabe.
Not hard to install. Took about an hour. Required a couple of screwdrivers.
No need to remove steering wheel.

It's pretty simple I think it took me like 10 min to do them, just make sure you dont loose the ball bearing inside the paddles.

Relatively simple to do as a DIY. Here's a video showing an overview of the steps involved:



Let me know if you have any questions!
