BFI Complete Replacement Shift Paddles - MK7 GTI / GLI / R

SKU: 8234-5G-700

After a lengthy development process, we are proud to introduce to you our Black Forest Industries Complete Replacement shift paddles for the MK7 GTI / Golf R. Designed for enthusiasts with a DSG gearbox (or Tiptronic shiftable automatic) to give both improved feel and better paddle access across a larger degree of the steering wheel.

The worlds first machined aluminum complete replacement paddles for VW with illuminated shift indicators.

Illuminated? That's right, these paddles have light tubes that allow us to utilize the factory LED lit function of the OEM paddles. 

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.
