Would any vendors be interested in coming out with a Paddle shifter upgrade kit? The factory ones are not terrible, but are a little light for my taste and kind of cheap. I would perfer some aluminum replacements. I'm also sure I am not the only one who thinks so!

Could not find it on HMA.

I had a lancer that had the static paddle shifters...def liked them much better than it being on the steering wheel. But I bet there are many ppl that would disagree with us.

I tried looking for the paddle shift system too, didn't seem like it was there and if it was in some documents that showed nothing in it then it's a matter of finding out how to get them to show.

Static shifters would be an excellent addition. I'm more looking along the lines of replacement aluminum pieces for the actual shifter actuators.

The design, if you remove one, is basically a button which is depressed and actuated when you pull it and sends a signal to the transmission. The question is, how can the button be modified to accept aluminum replacements? My guess is they are glued to the plastic paddle, but it would be nice for someone to confirm this theory.

they had aluminum ones in the korean aftermarket a few years ago. No one wanted them so they don't sell them anymore.

I rather have them fixed onto the column, with pull to upshift and push to down shift, on both sides, but thats just my preference. The knob works just fine for me.

I've seen pictures. The issue there is whoever styled the paddles was probably a klingon. I could see someone getting impaled on those during a front end impact.
