They are a quality piece IMO and a great improvement over the stock paddles.
They're just glued-on neoprene to begin with, so I'd imagine they will easily come off if the driver is an animal. But I'd think with normal use they'd be just fine. Thanks for the feedback! I am going to buy them.

On m3cutters there is a page dedicated to the storm Motorwerks. You might want to check there or PM the owner of Storm Motorwerks if there are any Christmas sales. There was one a year or so ago, when I got mine.

Consider the euro-spec paddles. They are slightly wider and I find they are slightly more comfortable as a result. PN 32347891004.

Wow, but $550 for paddles? That's a bit much. Anyone find a reasonable solution?

They were $150ish about 2 years ago. The current pricing is actually shocking

I've been after these for a long time. Just not worth the price for what they are. I like the Stormworks products too, BUT I wish the paddles were larger. I want large paddles like the AP paddles, more similar to what you would find in a Porsche, Lambo, or Ferrari. I HATE the 'sword blade' looking paddles.

...I have actually been trying to get a set of paddles similar to those AP paddles, made in full carbon for the SMG community. Hopefully this will be something in the near horizon, given how small and simple they are.
