      Hey guys,

      I was inquiring to the company about when new batches were made and went ahead and asked about a GB for us. Thankfully, they responded that new batches are on the way and that yes, they could do a GB. Product info here : http://www.s2tpp.com/AUDI.html

      Plenty of pics and other info also here: http://www.s2tpp.com/Audi-Paddle-Details.html

      Per S2T, “The pricing for 10 participants is $195.95 plus shipping. The pricing for 20 or more participants is $169.95 plus shipping.”

      We would need to get a list of interested parties and confirm everything is interested. Obviously, the price for 20 would be best here. I’ve seen these in person and they look like very nice pieces. There are two colors to choose from, Black Anodized and Silver Anodized.

      If you are interested (and will commit to buying!!), please let me know and as we build up interest, we can keep a list and begin to coordinate with S2T. Payments would be made direct to S2T.

      Thanks!

      John

      Believe it or not, the installation is not too difficult and doesn't take long at all... 20 minutes... max! I installed a set in my old R32 and it was one of my favorite mods.

      Hopefully they can.

      I'll probably go with a Black set but, I was also thinking about a custom finish...

      Even at the discounted rate, the paddles still seem pretty pricey. Its just a milled chunk of aluminum, I would buy if the +- was lit. I'll pass.

      That's because they are real replacements/connectors, not extensions, even some extension pieces can cost $100 or more that I've seen. All good.

      all that work removing the old one and replacing with this, and you don't get LED lit paddles? Maybe the krazy glued ones are better

      LEDs? your eyes should be on the road a lot of hate on these - if the price is too much or you are not interested, please by all means, do not post in this thread then.

      The TID's are pretty expensive and I don't really want/ need anything that crazy looking either. They ahve one model that is like $500 and another that is $299 - while STILL only using 3M adhesive. These are aluminum and are actually put onto your steering wheel, looks just like Evo MR paddles, not sure whats so cheap about it

      nothing "wrong" with the stock ones. For some who like larger ones or go to track days etc, you may want larger paddles. My god, I thought BMW boards were bad...

      Yeah, welcome to the A3 forum. It's a mixed bag around here, but most of us mean well I guess I have just gotten used to the paddle position...it works fine for me, but to each his own

      The ST2 paddles attach just like the oem paddles: that's what I want!



      Installation is not hard at all, might take 45 minutes to an hour at most.

      As long as you got your hand on the 3 & 9 o'clock position, you can always reach your flappy paddles. You don't need ones that reaches all the way to the top of the steering wheel since these flappy paddles moves with the steering wheel.

      OK, tell all the engineers making the larger OEM ones for high performance sportscars and supercars that they are idiots When I'm doing 120mph+ at the race track, downshifting into a turn, I dont want to have any guessing on properly grabbing the paddle. While you are technically correct that if you hands are at 3 and 9 it shouldnt be an issue, but again, some may WANT something bigger. If you dont like it, you dont need to **** in this thread buddy.

      Most high performance cars with paddles have them in a fixed position. I've always felt the Audi and BMW design of paddles rotating with the wheel was a flawed design. Making them bigger seems to exacerbate this flaw IMO but I can understand the desire. Over time, you will get used to whatever you have there so to each his own. I will say that if you are going anywhere near 120 in your a3 and your hands are anywhere other than 9 and 3 and the wheel is any more than a few degrees off center the position of your paddles are the least of the problem.

      Also, welcome to the forum. Lots of pics here: http://forums.fourtitude.com/showthr...78882-9mu8-101.
