This is a set of racing paddles for the BMW e46 M3 with the SMG II transmission. These beautifully CNC crafted paddles are made with 6061 aircraft aluminum, finished off with precision laser cut. Once you put these racing paddles on, you will never want to take them off again. It's the perfect item for track use and the bold design enhances the overall interior look. You can wheel shift so much easier than the stock paddles. During turns, you can get a good 30% more rotation without having to remove your right hand and shift with these SMG lever. You can also wheel shift with your elbows resting on your legs since your fingers can reach the bottom of the paddles when your hands are placed on the lower (4:00 and 8:00) positions. So it's much more comfortable when just cruising, or when taking, hard tight turns. You can pretty much find these paddles on your steering wheel no matter where your hands are. Since production numerous installations have been done without any problems, therefore fitment is guaranteed. Professional installation is recommended.
