Sorry, not looked at the fitting guide but can you just advise if you can swap without removing the steering wheel? (The biggest drawback if so)

You have to remove the airbag and the silver/red plastic trim (with the haptic buttons). It’s easier than it sounds.

Hmm, OK, I wouldn't trust myself doing that  :sad:

Would anyone know if the paddles as fitted to the 2021 Audi RS3 fit a Mk8 Golf Wheel?

(I have one on demo at the moment and the paddles are quite nice)

Just over 3 weeks since I ordered my R paddles. People weren’t joking when they said they take ages to come.

Oh and I’ve sent my Lockwood door sill protectors to be customised. Pictures when they come back.

Mine too, tracking says left Czech Republic 19/01/22, “ More information will be available when it arrives in the UK”.

If you paid for cheapest deliver like me, the tracking number works in Royal Mail website (in case you didn’t know).

Which I’d paid a bit more for delivery now, expected them to beat the car here, now I’m not sure as I’ve had an email today saying it’s arrived at UK port.

My dynamic centre caps have arrived from Germany though. They look great.

Those paddles do take 4-5 weeks if you pick the cheapest delivery option.

I’m glad you’ve got the same message as me!

Good to know also that it’s probably 4-5 weeks JoeGTI. Thanks.
