    Hi.
    Did anyone try this bigger race shift paddles for DSG cars?
    I have been thinking of bigger paddles after seeing a Porsche with PDK.
    Will it be inn the way of the whipper, light and cruse stacks?
    What do you guys think of it for the track day?

    I think they look ok, I would go for the black if I had a DSG.

    They would look okay on a FB, but on the 4 spoke, looks terrible.

    Yes. I agree on the 4-spoke point.
    Anyone tested these?

    I was interested until i saw the price!!

    I had some chrome ones on my M3 which looked alot better and were cheaper than those two.

    Thanks. Not bad and cheaper.
    But it is for VW! Are the paddles the same?

    I think a disadvantage would maybe be that it is not possible to grip the wheel completely at the shifters aeria.
    This is not good.

    What do you thinks?:uhm:

    Errrrr.......... Good question! In the picture the paddles that they've attached them to look a lot like mine do. Will need to confirm by checking a dsg golf though I would imagine they probably are the same.

    Contacted the seller earlier and, in his broken "Engrish", informed me that they won't fit our cars, BUT that they are currently in the process of making one for Audi's. No ETA on when they'll be ready though.

    Dos this mean that Audi is producing the paddle,
    and we can by the paddles seperetly?
    If so this would be my first choice.
    I got a reply from s2tpp and they are out of stock

    Had a chat over email with the seller. They can indeed supply the paddles separately...

    ...for 368 Euros ex shipping :blink:
