    I have had these for a little over two years and they’re big but I like them, the weight is good and they work when you happen to have your hand not a 9 and 3 pretty well too. I’m sure that I would miss them if I removed them

    I have a different set and find that the added width helps almost as the length, I like them.

    the size isn't so bad. and i think they look nice. but its the geometry that bothers me. the tops of the paddles stick out way too far from the wheel, and as you turn, your fingers tend to hit the wiper/turn signal levers. I don't know why all these manufacturers for various shift paddles cannot make one that matches up to the steering wheel's geometry? they all build them flat!!
    didn't really mean to shit on your thread (but i think i just did anyway). sorry...

    Something like this would be ideal. More following wheel and not quite as large.

    But not a bad option for what is available. They look well made. Screenshot_20190113-224441.jpeg

    I had the pinalloy ones for a few weeks then got ride of them and went with the Relak Ones.

    The only paddles I would ever go with now is the Relak ones. They match the finish of the other brushed aluminum pieces in the car except they are plastic. They are not hard edged or sharp. They look like they belong and they have a contour in the back which is great for your fingers.

    The pin-alloy ones when I got my set were garbage. They didnt come with the 3m tape. They had a flat back where your fingers actually rest against them so they are basically just for show. The cut for where they connect the original paddles was just flat and not contoured to the oem paddles so they were always loose. Nvm they set screw which damages the original paddles if you ever want to remove them or get different extensions. They were never tight. Just poor work overall.

    Looks like B8 only, not B8.5.

    To be honest Relak ones look hella amazing. Do you have some photos on your steering wheels with Relak installed?

    Custom made by Nexon. But please understand it was not cheap (~$2K). There is also a guy on ebay in Poland seems to do good work as well...

    OP those paddles are in a B9 S4 unless you managed to install virtual cockpit in a B8.

    Relak look great but as others have mentioned they are long and from what I have read the OE paddles have some play in them and when squeezing the paddle from the bottom all you do is rotate the assembly a bit and often times it does not click.
