The factory buttons have thin foam on the backside I suspect as a noise or rattle dampener. I just used the weather stripping to match the factory. Paddles work perfectly & quietly this way.

That's probably a safety thing to insure against the throttle mechanically sticking WFO. Bad enough on a Prius; can you imagine on your car? :yikes:
