Got G-Paddles

I hope you guys don't mind me sharing my personal experience and feedback on the G-Paddles. I am not associated or subsidized by the G-Paddles, just happy with their good product.

I got mine last week and installed over the weekend. I was on the fence about getting these originally and even after I installed them. However, it all went away after driving the car for a few miles and using them. The paddles definitely improved the fun driving experience and the look of the steering wheel. Despite being a plastic part, very well engineered and works as well as advertised. Actually, if anything, their marketing effort is a little on the weakside.

Installation was a breeze (I watched youtube multiple times and took things slower). Despite my extra careful approach, install took <30 min.

They’re great aren’t they?
Made my 350 feel much more sporty in manual than using the buttons. I retired mine so I had up on the right and down on the left.
