Received my Brushed Aluminum Extended Paddles today - quik shipping!

>> Paddles looked great as is - but I decided to add a little twist. The OEM DCT paddles are painted a darker color gray with the '+' & '-' painted on in a lighter gray.

>> The extended paddles come thru with the '+' & '-' machined in, and since the color of paddles is natural brushed aluminum - I painted in the machined '+' & '-' with Dark Gray for contrast so that they were more visible.

Simply used some Testors Enamel in Dark Gray with a very fine tipped artist brush to fill in machined logos.

>> Rest of install was EZ - only need to remove airbag & old paddles, wheel stays put

Extended paddles make for easier reach than OEM, and obviously you can now hit them from bottom also.

All in all - I'm very happy with the new look
