    Aftermarket paddle shifters

    Anyone know of any? I'm not very fond of the 'click' style paddles on the S3.

    I had a set of S2T paddles on my Roc R. They were fantastic. Felt like a proper paddle.

    How would they work, surely they'd just look better, but still 'click'?

    They replace the spring mechanism inside as well, giving it more of a proper shift feel. The spring is larger, so the paddle travels further.

    At least that's how it was on the S2T paddles. They're actual replacements, not stick-ons like the TID Styling ones.

    I imagine replacing the paddles rather than stick ons would be very pricey. Although, don't see why someone couldn't make stick on paddles with a spring to increase travel till it clicks the actual paddle, would give you similar feeling...maybe they exist somewhere?

    Not really. The S2T paddles were $250 AUS. Took all of thirty minutes to install. Made from solid anodised metal.
