    does the upgrade require the old paddles to be removed?

    The first pic would be my car.

    The paddles are fairly cheap and use a strong 3M tape to adhere to the existing paddles so there's no removal required.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Only for those who want to draw attention,'my paddles are bigger than yours'.

    Dont do it Robbie.

    Personally I wouldn't have gone for the larger one's a few pics below (i.e. those that extend both the top and bottom of the baddle) as they look a bit over the top.

    The Maniacs paddles I've found to be quite useful in changing gears with the wheel turned. Personal preference at the end of the day, but they do have function as well as being a decorative thing.

    Got something similar on mine. I am looking at having a more slender set made in carbon fibre, just not had the time but if I do I'll let you know how that works out. Rather than having to reach for the paddles my fingers now sit nicely on the CNC'ed gaps and you don't have tohave your hands constantly at quarter to three to use them. Funny as I was slated for having them on RS246! Each to their own.
