I ordered mine through Summit and I am still waiting for them, Mine show the aluminium paddles. Where yours shown with them or the delrin paddles? I looked up my part # it is the jager paddles not the delrin.

Let us know how the work out.

Also please let us know if you have any clearance issues with these paddles.

These have been incredibly popular since we started getting them on the shelves. I would love to see some more installed pics. We had some beauty shots done, but it is nice to see the stuff installed as well.

I like the whole idea and am very interested but I just realized, what happens during a front end collision? Do you just let go at the last second? Would hate to lose some fingers.

If the steering column collapsed enough to crush your hands, the paddles wouldn't make a difference.

Stock paddle shifters suck....nothing more than small switches on back of steering wheel. I would think these new paddles would be much easier to use and allow your hands to be in a more comfortable position.

Not only more comfortable but 9 and 3 o'clock are the correct hand positions for aggressive driving. The larger paddles are definitely easier to find and make it easier to shift in a dynamic driving situation.

Still waiting for serious critique

How much, if any, do they interfere with stalk access? Do they come loose after awhile. Let's get some data out guys for those of waiting in the the wings. It's not a money issue but rather, do they really work well, or OK, or whatever.
I really want them but want to hear from you first users first.

Camaro5 member Jagan323 did a review of these, and then a follow up video (below) after driving for a while. From his blog post:

Quote:
Okay you guys, here is the follow-up review. It's been around a week and a half since I have installed and reviewed these paddle shifters for you guys.

Since then, I have probably driven with these paddles for a good seven or eight days. They really make city driving a lot more fun. I mean, you aren't really pushing these babies to the max with all the traffic, but you definately get more variety with downshifting and upshifting. With these nice big paddles, changing gear is a breeze.

They are so tactile, and feel great. Initially I said that the paddles could be slightly thinner. However, I somewhat retract that statement. These "beefy" paddles feel REALLY good. (read more)
