paddle shifters on my xi

Installed the M steering wheel with paddle shifters, then upgraded the paddles to CF.heres the difference in size--love the paddles its a blast going up and down thru the gears on twisty roads--only wish the shifts were faster--big lag between gears--but you learn to compensate--almost forgot-- I had the steering wheel re-wrapped--had a big cut in it--also got the wheel and airbag for $350 along with the slipring--couldn't pass it up

You got it leather re-wrapped? nice! I did this mod too on my XI, re-wrapped in Alcantara by coby1. It's fantastic and coby1 is the man! I even got the alcantara shift / e-brake boots to match. I haven't gotten around to posting pics yet (I'll update you guys when I do).. but I gotta say I love the paddle shifting too! :thumbsup:

I love this mod, congrats OP! Too bad you're in Louisville, otherwise I'd say let's go for a ride!

What did you pay for the re-wrap? Hows the alcantara holding up?
