Love 'em. I've had mine installed a couple months now. Build quality is top notch, everything is just superbly machined and finished. The CF paddle looks very high quality, not like some aftermarket CF paddles. Installation is plug and play, everything has been well thought out and engineered.

The shift mechanism is very mechanical and clicky. It gives a nice tactile feel to the action of shifting. The click sound is much louder than the stock DCT shifters. This took a bit of getting used to initially but I love it now. Absolutely zero regrets with this mod.

There's a GB thread somewhere in here with some initial user reviews as well.

I have it, thanks to Redd for organizing the groupbuy.

The clack can be too loud to some, but I love it. The tactile feedback is excellent and make shifting a dct less dull. The best comparison I can give is oem paddle is like typing on a laptop keyboard and the MadTrace is like typing on a highend mechanic keyboard.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Sounds like a winner. Didnít realize there was a thread out there already; which subforum? I ran a search before posting here and didnít see anything.

I love mine. Very satisfying clicky clicks. Plus I drilled my MMR paddles to attach to the madtrace system. Perfect.
