If you find them please tell me, I like them in the style of Maserati but then in a metal color

Like these? Found em on AliExpress. C$ 37.80 | Savanini Steering Wheel Shift Paddle Extension For VW Golf 7 R GTI Scirocco POLO MK7 Tiguan Rline 2019 Auto Car accessories https://a.aliexpress.com/_mrcouep They look promising, might pickup a set. Either those or these: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/182934062046?hash=item2a97b843de:g:r7EAAOSwPzhaLkvM The second ones look a bit too big and a bit cheesy for me, maybe it’s just the pics, not sure.

I have experience with both. Currently running the first one. the fact that they're curved on the back is nice. Plus points for being more low key, and the machined +/- is nice. they're also not so big that parts become unusable. Took off the second ones. They're nice and big, but the bottoms don't activate the button because they lose leverage. Also the flatness of them just felt kinda bad. and yes, the cyber look to them definitely got old edit: I'll post pics in a bit

Thanks for the input. Please send pics!! All the stock ones on AliExpress are shit

[Savanini Set](https://imgur.com/a/sdiLSLf) / [Other pic](https://i.imgur.com/ox8HZ7n.jpg) (sorry those are the only pics I have) - Like I said, just switched to these after using the other style of paddle for 1.5 years. A lot more subtle and the fact that they're curved on the back feels a lot more ergonomic. Way more subtle, with just a bit of pop from the silver machined +/- icons. [Cyber Batarangs](https://imgur.com/a/9Iv0HTz) - They're really quite big, and if you like the look they're cool. But like I said in my previous comment, the paddles are completely flat in shape. So you fingers only have the 2 channels in the back to grip onto, and having used the other set now, it's far inferior feeling

I appreciate the pics man it helps out I think imma settle for the savanini paddles. I like feeling good quality and based on what u said I think they do just that!

The ONE thing you might find is that the holes on the Savanini paddles that the DSG paddle pins go through might be a bit too wide. If you don't do anything, the paddles may rattle around and not feel like they're mounted properly. But I just wrapped my pin with some tape to thicken them enough to fill any gaps. No fitment issues aside from that, paddles fit fine and function fine now


Reddddeye

Good to know. Hopefully it’s just a quality control thing and not all units have it


koelebobes

Bro yes this is what I need *edit* Ordered was looking so long for these kinda paddles ❤️


Reddddeye

I’m gonna get a set in silver !


koelebobes

I got the silver one too!


Reddddeye

I can’t decide betweeen the silver or the matte black ones. The silver would look nice, but there’s not a lot of silver accents that would match


koelebobes

I don’t know always thought of metal shifter paddles , my Logitech wheel had them too so I had to get the silver ones to finally fill my desire


Reddddeye

I believe they’re both metal, no? I feel that tho


koelebobes

I mean the brushed aluminium finish :) ( sorry )


Reddddeye

You ever end up picking up a set? Mine just came in today, they’re perfect! Check my recent post

[These](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DQFNL9G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_NKTRQAAJ68Q2D5KK5BA8?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1) are the ones I've had for 2 years. Basically knockoffs of S2T but they are metal and good quality.


nono0044

Those are the knock off racingline ones, and OP stated that they're not fond of the ones with the holes.


xetmes

Ah yeah you're right I got them mixed up. I'm not sure of any other cheap ones that aren't stick on.


SuperBrentendo64

These are the best option I've seen. Not sure if there's an equivalent without holes.


Reddddeye

Just found these! They don’t look too bad https://a.aliexpress.com/_mLvLcs9


SuperBrentendo64

Oh yeah those look good.


S4vant

Found those on AliExpress for half the price! Check my other comments I linked them


S4vant

Oops, did not see that! Good spotting!

I’ve got Leyosports, they cradle the original paddles and secured with a grub screw, love them but they weren’t cheap (AUD220)
