Carbon paddle extensions M135i LCI - £40

Post by CynicalRobot » Tue Mar 27, 2018 8:49 pm

Hey All,

Been looking for some paddle extensions for a while and tried the metal ones from ebay but couldn't get on with them. Just bought a set of "carbon" ones from good ol China and they are actually not that bad, at least i think so? I dont know if they are real carbon or not, main thing for me is they are very light and look the part.

I thought i would post some pics of them here in case anyone else is looking for a set...

You can get them here - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/NULLA-C ... 56363.html

On ebay they seem to go for double - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/REAL-CARBON- ... SwR~5aDcxl


Here are the pics, i will get better ones in the day time :)

Shame you can still see the old paddles. If they were replacements they'd look good in my opinion.

Good luck with the sale.

The OEM M2/3/4 paddles are much nicer IMO

Hmmm, I’m tempted but I quite like the discreetness of the oem paddles.

Tempt me...how much would you like?

I dont feel comfortable doing that if im honest, would it void the warranty in anyway or would you switch them back to the old ones if you took it into bmw?

I still think they are too small, i like long paddles :(

There are a genuine BMW parts and the electronics innards are the same as original paddles but as you know with any modification, warranty can be affected on associated parts if you do not return it to standard.

Even hanging furry dice on the rear view mirror can affect warranty :)
