    HI everyone,

    Just wondering if nice paddle shifters exist? iv search the forums and eBay and so on and all look like they belong on a touring car or in Nascar series! All super huge and poke out so high. I would like some small paddle shifters, preferably allum or steel for a nice look.

    Thanks for the advice in advance.

    :)

    Oem RS3 paddles. Chose those because they're a direct fit and are the perfect match between size and looks if you ask me.

    They are nice. perfect really. Only prob is that I’m after something that doesn’t require me to take off the wheel or do lots of mods. Only just got the car so I’m not ready to start taking her to bits yet!! Are there any that just bolt on easily?

    @DJAlix do you have a pic of yours? I can't remember what they were, but from memory they didn't seem too OTT when I saw them.

    As the new owner of a S3 2018 I too find the paddles a little bit too small

    Cheers for the replies guys. Taking off the wheel is out of the question. No tools here and not really something I would want to do. Any that bolt over the existing ones would be great. Most seem like stuck on ones which aren’t out of the question but like I said in the 1st post, most are huge or horrible!

    Ebay guys, think mine were about £30 from a UK based seller, another member ordered them cheaper on ebay but from Hong Kong, and yes he did get them :)

    PS: Dead easy to fit them, they just pop on over your existing ones, 3M tape keeps them on...think I'll leave them on when the car goes, as they are rock solid and I wouldn't fancy trying to pull them off!!!

    Found these metal ones a while back on eBay they clip on over the original paddles so no need for tape etc. Haven’t purchased though they’re quite steep at £90 from the US and I’m not sure whether they’re a little too big.

    I saw those too and liked the clever way they attach but they don’t look very OEM

    Mine is the A5 and I think they were 100% black plastic.

    Nice shifters guys. Still seem a little long to me. Do they not get in the way of the VC/binnacle? After something a bit shorter, however I know I might be being a bit too picky! Maybe some like this in the link below...Not sure if they fit but it was just a quick gander! Actually, the ones in the first foto of the eBay link are great but I think they are the official Audi ones where I have to take the wheel off and tinker etc....

    Presume it is because I have small hands (go on say it... :icon thumright:) but I sometimes only catch the end of the paddle. I feel like they need to stick out some more. Anyone seen any aftermarket like that?
