    Dunno what's happening here! I've had stuff from them before. Hopefully a glitch. I'll try again tomorrow. [​IMG]

    I got mine from Ali Express for about £8 delivered. Have been stuck on for 2 years plus without issue for me.

    Do the screw fastenings work with these or do you need to stick with pads?

    I think I may be one of the only people happy woth the paddle shifters that are standard. Over the 4+ years of cupra ownership, I've never missed a paddle considering the short ratio steering rack. But each to their own I suppose...

    The weird thing is I've used a few other manufactures padle shift padles... and my logirtch g920 Xbox steering wheel is better haha, I think that seat paddle shift have a good quality ( albeit plastic ) feel... they are very responsive

    They're not bad, just wish they were a bit taller.

    I'm a little confused on which paddles to get. Full replacements aren't being made by any manufacturer as far as I can tell so we're stuck with stick-on extensions.

    However, I thought the stick-on extensions were the same as for Golf GTI/R MK7 but according to DSG Paddles shop those use a different fitment called SE7EN. Cupra use the same fitment as Audi 2013-2016 models it seems. I have e-mailed them, will see what they say.

    Well, as far as i am concerned, the only problem we have when putting this extensions -appart from the "coupling"- is that "+" & "-" symbols are not illuminated on the paddles. I can't believe that not a single manufacturer had think of us. Maybe if we pose a group purchase they would model some full paddle for us...

    Anyway, i'll take a look at your link.

    Regards!!!

    @Dannnnn while I have your attention, is the cheaper "Black Natural Versatile Plastic" sturdy/rigid enough or which material would you recommend?

    Based on the datasheets I have access to the Black Pa12 is the stiffest material.

    The curved paddles are stiffer by design (curved shapes are always stiffer).

    Sorry @Dannnnn just one more question. How do you remove the airbag with the battery disconnected? Looks like the steering wheel must be turned 90 degrees both ways to reach the springs that hold it but can you turn the wheel when the battery is disconnected? I have keyless.

    I have owned an Octavia vRS and now a Leon FR. Both with DSG & paddles. Completely happy with the standard paddles. I suspect it depends on the steering technique (where the driver places their hands on the steering wheel rim) & whether he/she has the habit of manual gear changing when turning.
