It depends on what you're used to. I got mine from another member here for $165 but I've seen them go for $150 to $200. I like the way the new paddles are setup. I rarely use it since it's an auto, but when I want to have some fun this setup is, IMHO, better.

Quick question do you only change the paddles or require the m3 switches to? Was just wondering in case the plugs are different.

On eBay it says for SSG transmission additional wiring is required. My car is an LCI but has old style paddles (shift up and down on both sides).

The standard paddles have 3 wires per paddle. 1 for ground, 1 for upshift, and 1 for down shift. DCT paddles have 2 wires per paddle, 1 paddle will have an upshift wire and the other will have a down shift wire and the. There is the ground.

Just to clarify, you don't need to cut anything/ swap anything, just take off the wheel and plug n' play? Do you have to have the sport package or anything like that?
