    Paddles Retro-fit?

    Anyone know if existing PDK owners will be able to retro-fit the new paddle system?  If so, when?

    Would you do it?  I have long said that the push-pull buttons, though unique, have a very plasticky, flimsy feel, and if the paddles have a better (more metallic) feel, then I would consider it, if possible.  I also love the new steering wheel!

    I think that the option wheel w/ L/R paddles will be available in Feb '10. You will be able to order one then.

    But why would you do that? The std dual paddles are a far better design - if you drive twisty roads, which are the right roads for these cars.

    I'll need to test drive a car with paddles to get the correct impression of their utility.   If I find it counter-productive / counter-intuitive, I'll re-think.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the estimated date!

    I was at the OPC last weekend to enquire about the paddle steering and also the SC wheels.  Neither are available to date with the OPC not aware of the release date.  The problem I have with the standard steering wheel is, on the track, my palms end up touching the little buttons and i thus inadvertently change up mid corner.  The paddles should cure this.

    The OPC sold me a group 1 baby seat though.

    Cheers
