Question Gauging Interest: Slon-Workshop Extended DCT Paddles Group Buy

I have been more and more impressed with the custom parts available from Slon-Workshop, one of the new supporting vendors here: slonik

Checkout their Brembo 6 piston caliper retrofit to use on stock rotors:

Also check out their beautiful DCT oil pan (I ordered one and will review shortly):

To the point, after pouring over all of the details in slonik E82 S65 build, I noticed the beautiful DCT paddles that Slon-Workshop created. Here is the build thread: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...1122669&page=3

Here are some pics of the paddles:





Post anodizing:




To my eye, these are beautiful and seem quite functional given the size. One thing I would like to have added is the OEM "finger groove" as found on the backside of the OEM DCT paddles. I would also also like to have them finished in the matte titanium OEM finish, if possible.

Here are the grooves and the matte finish on the original units:


Let me know if these are of interest. We can all save a few bucks with a group buy.

......maybe, but it would depend on the final product.

The ones in the pics are not what I would call beautiful & don't look all that well finished to me.
They look like something they knocked off quickly to serve the function.

I had planned on buying the Pedal Haus ones, but I'm not in any rush if they can make a nice product at a good price.

The finger groove on the back is a 'must have' for me as well.

buddalun, thanks for your interest!
i'm very pleased to see, that you like our work.

this paddles were made for fitting with race steering wheel, so i don't know how it will fits with oem wheel, cause our sensor cases location differs from oem steering wheel mounting points. i've made really huge paddles and mounts them where they should be for maximum convenience.

inTgr8r

i already wrote that we made this paddles for using on race steering wheel, and together they looks perfect and works perfect. we didn't had purpose to make something, which will fits and looks appropriate in a fully stock interior.
and, if you'd had a chance to try them with this race steering wheel, you wouldn't talk about finger grooves etc.
i've tried oem m3e92 config, or for example m3e46 with oem steering wheel+ large aftermarket paddles, and i can only describe this in a words like "real racing, not posing".


so, we can make something adapted for oem wheel, but if i'm correct, there are a lot of aftermarket paddles on ebay already.


ps this offer can have real interest for people, who owned prepared track days cars, who want functioning dct paddles on a race wheel.
because all offers, i saw when we made this -were too expensive motorsport solutions.
