The day many have been patiently waiting for is finally here. BFI Shift Paddles for Audi 4M Fitments are available now! Starting today, Audi's with trapezoidal airbag from 2017-2023 A3/S3, A4, Q3, Q5/SQ5, Q7/SQ7, Q8/SQ8 (4M), now have a full replacement shift paddle from BFI! After many iterations and lots of in-car testing, we think we have found the perfect paddle shifter for your Audi. Larger extensions that give you a larger grip radius when shifting and give you a more aggressive look, while maintaining the classy appearance of your Audi interior. We think they are the right size to be functional but not outrageous looking. 

Fully illuminated, using the factory LED lighting these paddles retain all the factory function of the OEM paddles, while adding additional click area and an upholstered Alcantara back to make normal, every day shifts feel a bit more special.

Made from billet aluminum, machined in-house, then bright dipped and anodized for surface finish longevity, each one of these paddle sets takes more than 2 hours to complete from start to finish. A "full" replacement paddle that is connected to the OEM paddle hinge in your steering wheel, not a stick on or tacked on addition. Each paddle shifter is sized to maximize shift-click annulus without being gaudy or putting the paddle past the hinge where it can't click effectively.


Much like our VW versions of these paddles, our Audi Shift Paddles are the worlds first machined aluminum complete replacement paddles for Audi vehicles with illuminated shift indicators. Illuminated? That's right, these paddles have light tubes that allow us to utilize the factory LED light function of the OEM paddles.

All Audi paddle shifters include an upholstered Alcantara backing on the center of the shift paddle, where most normal shift clicks take place. The Alcantara adds an element of luxury and soft texture to each click of the paddle, without hindering any function, adding to your driving experience.


Give your BFI Shift Paddles a tailored look with custom BFI Tree coins! Available separately in black, red, blue, chrome, and brushed stainless.
