    It doesn't look like those go over existing paddles. Euro Boutique seems to have mostly gen 1 stuff on their site. Are those the $649 extended paddles? They look great, but not for $649.

    These are installed in place of the oem so not a sticker, but freestanding units with electronics built in. I agree they are expensive, i believe these are 750 for gen2. Oem paddle shifters are a big complaint for lots of folks. Two added benefits are they dont make the mouse click sound when pressed and there is more room for your hands to grip the steering wheel compared to most extensions

    If folks are after oem look then these are definitely not the right set. I posted them so everyone can get a better idea of what it looks like installed and make a personal decision. No offense taken at all. I agree design could be improved a bit to look more oem, but theyre much better in person and the size is exactly what I was looking for. Very functional.
    Looking forward to seeing your pieces, where did u have them made?

    Niiice. Who made them?
    Also, why is your wheel smooth on top and bottom? I thought the plus had perforation all around?

    Those look amazing. How much did they run you? I don't need carbon fiber. Plastic will do, though aluminum might be better. For me the problem with the stock paddles is size, not material.

    They way they are built would only allow for a carbon material as the orignal paddle internals are built into the carbon frames, they aren't a stick on type, they are hand made using a oem paddle as the heart of the paddle rather than extensions. They were a fair amount tbh, i paid roughly £500 for them but honestly they are worth every penny, i tried 3 different types of extensions and all came of within a week, these things are genuinely perfect and have been made to be perfectly suited to the wheel and seating positon so they dont get in the way.

    Also the smooth wheel seems to be a stock thing in the UK i havent come accross one that is entirely perforated

    Wow these look amazing. Tactile feel would be the same as stock right?

    I had EB build me a set last year with some special request. I ended up trading in my car before they were done. Shape wise is the same as OP.
