got a few treats for the M today!

went over to EAS and pulled the trigger a Mpower ebrake and got some paddles installed as well.
gave the M3 a bath as well for cars and coffee tomorrow.

also pictured is my girlfriend's 335d, it got the EAS treatment as well.

thanks rob, tom, and everyone else at EAS!

What paddles are those. My car has the same ones, the previous owner installed them, and I don't know what they are.

I saw them in a recent build thread and lived them. I didn't want something too flashy or too busy, but I did want an extended paddle and these really fit what I was looking for.
I found them on bimmian. They do come in different finishes, but I wanted as close to oem as possible and brushed aluminum was perfect.
To the unfamiliar person, they look factory. To someone who knows what they are, they are subtle, aesthetically pleasing, and functional. Great pieces.

here are a few pictures showing the side profile of the paddles. they come closer to the wheel where the stock paddles do, but with the curvature of the wheel, they have more space towards the top and bottom.
i like that i can grip the wheel at the notches and have a few fingers on the paddle comfortably.

Paddles look awesome. But I'm not digging the parking brake handle - little bit tacky.

Love the MPower handbrake, really looks cool and 100% OEM. It compensates for the lack of M badges in the car.

I had these paddles on my e46 M3. They were a huge improvement on that car. Not sure I would change out the OEM paddles on the e92.

Looks like you've got a thing for Space Gray
