Paddle Shifters

For those of us who like to drive in M mode like I do, here's an option to have big boy paddle shifters. I found these on Amazon a few weeks ago and was skeptical on the performance however after using them for a few weeks they actually work fairly well. I've always found the MB paddle shifters to be too small to really be effective so here's a solution. Just thought I'd share if anyone is interested.

Interesting. I do sometimes use the paddles, but I don't have a problem with them being too small. I can easily reach them with my fingertips. Those adapters do look interesting, though.
