Paddle shifters

Has any one replaced their paddle shifters? Mine are looking a little tatty due to being caught a few times. Just trying to find some CF ones or soemthing a bit different.

JM ones are also much cheaper!

I'm sticking with the magnesium ones!

I've nearly clicked "buy" a few times. Just wonder how simple they are to fit

Now that's funny. It's almost universally agreed that the only aesthetically dodgy thing about the DBA-R35 is the mottled magnesium paddles, and yet they're the one part you're prepared to accept as they left the factory!

Where's the link to the JM Carbon paddles? $900 for the other set is a joke.

In the JD carbon section in traders mate.

Would they do us a deal if we both bought them :-)

I like to think of them as raw rather than mottled!

I like carbon to match but if you over carbon it becomes a bit what I call, matchy matchy.

OTT.

If you have carbon it should match (hence the tail pipes!) but that doesn't mean it should be applied everywhere.

I think it's a little wasted on the exterior, but to cover up the cheap looking plastic, I don't have a problem.

I don't mind that same plastic if it looks like an accent rather than a whole panel, such as around the vents, stereo fascia and the screen, but for large expanses like the door handle and the centre console it makes sense.

I love the steering wheel ideas but don't want to get too carried away with the whole carbon thing, when it looks so nice already. It does look like it would be nicer to use though!

I agree you can go OTT with interior carbon, as you say it should be "accents" not an entire carbon interior.

I'm happy with my interior now (well I will be once the JM Carbon gearknob arrives) and I like the silver plastic as it lightens up what would otherwise be an oppressively dark interior.
Ideally I'd like the panel over the CD slot done, but if I got that done to match the JM Carbon wheel and gearknob, I'd have to swap out my RSW AC and gearlevel panels to match too and I'm not going down that route!

The CBA-R35 paddles are nice to use and look at, the DBA magnesium ones just look you've been using them with greasy fingers IMO...

Sorry, again in English? Are you saying you need pics of my knob?
Didn't realise this was that type of forum and I'm certainly not that sort of bloke...

Stupid iPhone correction.

Anyway the JM gear knob a paddles I think would be all I'd to interior wise, maybe the gear surround aswell if it was a good colour match
