If there was a way to get the CF shift lever extensions directly from PPI at a good price ($7-900 range) and purchased through London Lad.....who would be able to distribute them to individual members carefully packaged and labeled from the UK, who would be interested?

Here is a poll:

Yes

No

I hope I did this correctly! :)

Depending on how the connect, I might be interested. Someone said in the other thread they were $450 for the set, so why a group price of 700-900?

I think others who talked about lower prices were talking about different extensions. These are the CF ones with the original OEM switch surrounded by a beautifully sculpted paddle. These are by PPI, not some of the others who have tried to create similar products.

The cost from PPI or OEMPlus (if they can get them) will be much more than 7 to 900....without a doubt. We are hoping to be able to get a good price if we work directly with PPI and work through London Lad in the UK.

Hopefully that explains the situation here better.

P.S. These paddles REPLACE the ones on the wheel. Some people can do this installation on their own, but some, like me with 2 left hands and a lack of opposable thumbs, will require the dealer to do the change. That, of course, can vary in cost!

Thanks for clearing that up SB. I'll be in if we can get a better idea on pricing. Past attempts to order from PPI have been frustrating at best (which led to carbonio stepping in with a lower price), so we'll see how that goes.

I was told by my dealer approx $200 for the install.

In my opinion $200 would be great! Did the dealer say if switching paddles changes anything in the warranty?

frontside pics of paddle?!
Stella Polare.....I am sure that the picture is the FRONT side of the paddles. They look very nice. I'm assume the BACKSIDE has well done CF also and is smooth, but that is a question we can ask of PPI.

I know that my M6 paddles have a rubberized back so these could as well I suppose. So it is worth asking PPI.
