Default Shift paddles?

I've been trying to find a larger set of shift paddles for the e46M3 to replace the OEM ones.

However all I can find is this style, which I don't particularly like:


I'm looking for a non-hollow paddle, similar to these:


Do you guys know of any company making them for the e46?

I don't think I have ever seen the ones OP posted for the E46 M3.

I personally have the Storm motorwerks ones. I like them, but they most definitely aren't the carbon fiber ones like in the first post.

Thanks guys.
Yeah I know the ones you guys linked. I spent a couple hours yesterday searching and there´s really nothing out there except for these 4 designs.

I have the paddles in the OP's picture, but in carbon fiber instead. They're large enough, though I'd personally like paddles like what Maserati put on their GT MCs.

With or without the pads on the back? I'm looking for some feedback from someone who has it with the pads to see if its worth it or not.

Since the ones in the first pic are 2 piece which can be taken apart or seprated, something like the ones in the second pic can be made and replaced with the paddles them selves
Now you got me thinking of a new project, but mine will be in silver aluminum.

I got the ones with the pads (and the ones that glow). They were a gift. I like the tactile feel of them, but people are having problems with them coming off. Mine seem ok so far, but I figure nothing that a little super glue couldn't fix.

They are a quality piece IMO and a great improvement over the stock paddles.
