Fancy this mod/upgrade
hate the white finish, like the design..........
Does look good
No doubt a nice price to. But the do look great.
Not really keen on that imo.
Look abit to big, the standard ones are small and neat. But all entitled to their own opinions.
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.
Thanks for the reply.
Dude, you have hairy knees? lol
Hideously large, whole point of the audi ones is to try & keep them as unassuming as possible & it works, cant say I like these atm.
My thoughts exactly.
Only for those who want to draw attention,'my paddles are bigger than yours'.
Dont do it Robbie.
ha ha ha.......
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.
With respect, not liking them at all, makes the steering wheel look like darth vaders tie fighter
Nowt wrong with Tie Fighters. and they work.
Classic reply....... Love it, Vaders tie fighter. Legend status
There are carbon fiber ones on ebay for £38. Dont look as in your face as these.
think i'm getting these....
Audi DSG Carbon Paddle Extensions Ver 2 R8 TT TTS ttrs S3 S4 RS4 RS6 Q7 S3 A5 S5 | eBay
These are the ebay ones, just stick over existing paddles.
Not keen on them myself ... they also look like they will hinder / block easy access to the the indicator and wiper stalks when driving ?
No such issues.
