    Did I dream it or can you get aftermarket DSG paddles made of aluminium/stainless?

    If you understand German I think this thread might help you.
    Motor-Talk
    I only look at the pics, don´t speak a word German. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif So it might be about something complete different.

    Are the standard paddles metal? Are they easy to remove? Could they just not be chromed if they are?

    Except that chroming might be bit too bright I suppose...

    No idea, but I think the thread is about R32, what type of pads has the Golf?

    Wasn't there a thread on Tyresmoke about this - think VW cottoned-on to the big potential demand for the R32 alu DSG paddles and trebled the price of them - from VW UK they're something like £115 + vat. EACH!!!!!!

    pardon? Is that in lira?
    I'm sure if a few of us clubbed together we could get a machine shop to bang some together for a fraction of the price. Anyone fancy it? I guess we'd need a doner part first though...

    I'm happy to look into this as well. Anyone got a part number for the paddles? Dealer has just given me 8P0951527 and 8P0951527A for left and right but said they didn't look very paddleish....

    I can make some, but I´ll need a original one (Right and left) to make a Cad model first, or I´ll need a cad file of one (solid) They arent that easy to manufacture so I guess that the cost will be the same if you dont get anyone to manufacure the on his/her spare time! (I would ofcourse make those cheaper the the orgianl, but then I´ll need to make more than one par!

    David,

    I think Phillipe makes his own paddles so VW's price hike wont make a difference.

    did this metal paddle option ever get anywhere?

    I've looked on the audiworld site and can't see a mention of it.

    If anyone has a definate source for these (whether audi or aftermarket or home made) please can they let me know.

    I'm going to persue it when mine turns up on the 1st march. I'll take my plastic paddles off and see what a machine shop can do for me/us.

    Eeef,

    Be interesting regarding price. I would think to engineer very low volume would be non cost effective, but you may have better contacts than myself !

    if I can get a sensible price for bulk i'll get a load (10-20 sets). I've no doubt at all that they would sell.

    More evidence that it exists / will exist soon - at what cost, and if Eeef can't manage to source a manufacturer cheaper.

    Audi_Options_USA

    It seems this is limited to the Sport rather than across the range (se) and maybe limited to the 2 ltr turbo.

    Group buy from the states anybody !
