R Paddle shifters for GTI
« on: 15 March 2021, 13:58 »
Has anyone seen anywhere in which you can buy the extended paddle shifters that the R has so i can hopefully fit them to my clubsport? (when it eventually arrives)

Ordered - Golf GTI Clubsport. 19” Adelaide alloys, Rear view camera, Pure White.

I was about to ask the same question. The MK8 R has longer paddle shifters as standard so we could do with someone taking theirs off to see if the fitment is the same. If they are then they should be available from VW parts.

Any idea if they would fit a 7.5?

I asked this when the first r reviews came out, nobody really answered. From looking at you tube videos though they look to be a different shape to 7.5 ones, could be wrong though.
TCR, Pure Grey, DCC, Dynaudio and Climate Screen.
