Installation of the 2012 / 13 is almost the same but not exactly.

You don't need to remove the steering wheel or disconnect the battery or anything.

It only requires the removal of a long pin holding the existing buttons (See pictures below).
After you replace the old plastic Paddles with ours, you need to secure them by re-indstalling the same pin back to it's place.

It's a very easy process. Takes 5 minutes.

Here are some pictures showing the details: (Again, there is no need to remove the steering to do this).

The pin removal, Did you push it out or did you pull it out? I'm just making sure I don't want to break anything. Thank you sir in advance, I am still waiting on mine. Hopefully it arrives this week.

Can you make a video of this process?

When removing the plastic Paddles, You push it out from the bottom to top.
The top part of the pin is threaded to keep it held tight.

After placing the New Paddles, you push it back in from top to bottom, keeping the threaded part last.

Very easy.

Can you post a video on installing the paddles on the 2012+ models like
you posted for the 10 and 11 models.
the pictures are nice, but the video would be much nicer.
thanks

If these were for a manual trans, id be impressed. not to hate. they look awesome! But to have automatics shifting faster than manuals? awe hell no! come on GM! Give us manual tranny's some paddles!

Just received my paddles in the mail, they look great, made very well, as soon as it warms up I'll get them installed.
High quality item, if they work as great as they look we have a winner.

Installed mine last night, definitely worth the wait. Paddles have a good finish on them and match the interior perfectly. During the install the pin gave me some trouble, it just wouldn't go through the bottom hole of the paddles, I sanded the bottom half of the pin and BAM the pin went through. Paddles work & feel great, Thanks Mr. Tazi for all the work you put into making these, Good form Sir.

After a minor setback, I got mine installed tonight. Horizon (Ahmed) was great to work with to help me through my issue. The paddles turned out great and the will make driving my ZL1 so much more fun!

what problems did you run into installing the paddles and how long did it take you. Any good pointers on the installation.
I have a set, put it's been way to cold to mess around installing them.
thanks

Deke736 had to widen a little bit the 2 small holes to allow the pin to go easily.

I had to make a small video to show how to adjust the Paddle's feedback (recoil movement). In case you feel there is not much travel, some Paddles were shipped with that adjusting screw closed all the way so you may feel that the Paddles dont recoil. This is why we have included the adjusting screw so you can fine tune it to your preference.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to send me a message.

I will post that video to show how easy it is to install these Paddles and also how to adjust the amount of travel.

Thank you

Once I see the install video for the 12-13's I will buy a set. Loved them on my 11 but want to see the install video for the new model.
