Pre-Lci shift paddles to extended paddles

Hello guys, I have a m-sport model that came with this type of paddle shifter and at first I was fine with them, but now I'm starting to hate them.



This is what I want



My question is can I use my existing paddle modules from pre-lci and just buy extended paddles and make it work?

Thanks!

the housing stays the same but I think you can change the paddles to the pedal haus ones

I have the plain SSG paddle shifters. Can I turn those to +/- like the DCT has with just buying new paddles? Or do I need new modules?

If the ssg paddles are designed the same on the inside like the +\- paddles then it'll work
No need to change or get anything else

If you want the extended paddles I think you'll need the m3 dct module but if you want to just convert your ssg to right upshift, left downshift you can just rewire them. I have m3 dct paddle + module and it was straight plug and play. If you look at the extended paddles from the m3, you can see that the way they mount to the module is different than how the paddles are mounted on the ssg module but maybe you can make it work somehow.

Check this out for rewire.

Thats video is great, thanks a bunch! I think I will do this ASAP. But I do want the extended paddles. I will try to take apart the SSG paddles and see if I can attach a paddle shifter extension to the SSG housing. I think it will attach but still retain the downward shift, and since it will do nothing after rewire, than who cares.
