    They look really good Raz. I looked at their site the other day and they have black ones too. I think the aluminium ones look the biz. Are they good and sturdy? And I'm curious, what's the connector for in the pic? These just fit onto existing don't they?

    Stupidly expensive but check out the M Acarbon ones. Whoa... they are gorgeous especially if you have carbon trim. But the price !!!! I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of these Raz.

    Have done some searching. Relak not quite ready for the B8.5 paddles yet. Sent them a message, but found this out through Audizine. Want to find out when they'll be ready to see if I can get the special price that's on now.

    They are really sturdy, good solid ones. The quality is very good
    The connector in the picture is where they have removed the OEM paddle to show how it fits.
    These just stick on the back the back of existing paddles.

    Aaaawww....not being made for the paddles on the 8.5 yet. They look really good raz. 72 hrs sounds like hard work.

    Really struggling not to use them lol whilst driving, seems like the positioning is ideal though for 10 to 2 driving grips... Hurry up 72 hrs!!

    Couldn't wait lol, only used a couple of times and not right at the ends to avoid leverage. They have a really nice feel to them and no movement vs OEM paddles.
    Weird feeling smooth metal though vs the grooves on the original ones but I love them already.
    Love looking back at the car when I get out or when coming back to it to see them poking up from behind the wheel!
    Combined with the RS5 wheel, this has to be one of my favourite mods!

    And raz. I really like those. I think they look great. I've sent Relak a message to see if they are going to be doing them for the 8.5 paddles otherwise known as spuds.

    I'll take some without the flash as they don't bling in your face as much

    Ok, so loving these, the best use so far is turning 90 degrees right at a junction. You find a space so want to floor it quickly to get into it without causing issues for others driving, when done before if in D it shifts too early and doesn't give you the acceleration needed. You put in manual but then you end up revving too high as you wait for the wheel to straighten to then change up with the right paddle (as with stage 2 it doesn't take much before you're above the limit even in 1st gear).
    With the shifters it means you can change up quicker as the tip is now quicker to come up vs the OEM paddle, so a much smoother operation to clear the gap and start cruising.
    Got to say have used manual mode a lot more since got these :D
