Been loving the new paddles. Definitely a great modification and very much enhances the driving experience without compromising the handiness of the existing switches for one handed driving.

One tiny gripe is that I've found the AMG paddles a little small. Also, while I can use them ok they may have been mounted a little inboard for the most comfortable use.

Im thinking of resolving both issues with a pair of these paddle extensions (there are similar ones around in different styles). They use grub screws to attach to the existing alloy paddles. Have emailed to see if the silver matches the silver of the existing paddles although I've a hankering to go for them in black.

I daresay its a marmite thing but they can be taken off in 2 minutes if I don't like them.

This is a mod I will do when I get some time, I would be very interested to see how these extensions work out, they look great.

Guys, wow this is a great thread, thank you so much to all of you that have done it and took the time to post results.

I have a question that I think it will clear any confusion going forward.

If you have a multi-function steering wheel, you will need a

150ohm for the down shift ( yellow to RED (tip control))
270ohm for the up shift ( yellow White (tip control))

is this correct?

Thanks in advance.

Jay

Hi Andrew, Another shot from the front, the paddles are AMG off ebay £60.00, I have kept my old wheel in case I want to go back, the difficult bit in profiling the mounts, was thinking of getting some 3D printed but happy for now just to get it running again. Had a bit of a scare when I got it all back together, reconnected the battery, switch on the ignition and every fault you can think of came up tried to start it but every thing went mad windows half down solenoid bouncing, battery had completely failed wouldn't take a charge. New battery fitted and now everything back to normal thank god.


there are two yellow cable from each paddle, which one is ground?

I’ve planning to get the parts together to do this as local indie told me they would not code a new wheel due to concerns on new air bag.

Any friendly PIWiS opps?

Really I changed my gen1 tip wheel to a gen2 pdk on my gen1 and gen1 wheel to a 991 sport wheel on my gen2 and the OPC had no issues doing it. Suggest you try another indie or friendly OPC mate if you still want to do the swap. Bournemouth OPC have done loads of then now Thumb
