Do you shift manually often? If yes, then go for it. I usually put it in SD and shift manually only when need to pass someone on the highway.

Naw, I like my sports tri-spoke steering wheel that came with my sports package. If I had the regular one, I would definately change it to the SMG steerin wheel though.

ive seen it in action, and the m3 wheel alone is worth the upgrade, why not go the extra distance and get the paddles. They do shift pretty fast, even for an automatic.

I love mine! :thumbup:
One of the best Step mods you could ever do..seemless shifts and a lot quicker/responsive..
Of course a new ACS steering wheel helps too..hehe

I did it. The M3 wheel alone was WELL worth it.

If you shift in M mode 100% of the time like I do, then you will have some MAJOR fun with the paddles. Adds a whole new dimension to driving a step. :thumbup:

i think it's a cool mod, if you have the $$

but i wouldn't do it. i just don't use the m mode enough.

that's why i got an automatic transmission...SO I DON'T HAVE TO SHIFT

WITHOUT A DOUBT.... DO IT!

Best mod I have done, and I have done a bunch. More than just your typical mod, it is something that you will constantly use and rely upon. The benefit of the paddle-shift retorfit goes way beyond just adding the M3 wheel... it is like changing the whole transmission.

I wouldn't want my car without it.
