some new goodies just arrived from DHL


just installed the padle shifters and wow they're great



notice the gap between them and the handles is great feels OEM and super easy to install.

Don't talk to me about too much traffic bro, I'm in LA I didn't realize that you could change out the paddles, I rented a few SS's that were autos and dug the button shift, those must be so much better!

Ok just took the car for a ride and man those shifters are awesome ,it was a bit weird cz im used to use the buttons all the time and this was totally new to me , using them was really easy and you could cruise with your hands on the lower side of the wheel and still change gears with my finger tips, just one thing they have some really sharp edges that feel rough on your hands but it's nothing some sandpaper won't handle, overall great product worth every penny .
