Storm Motorwerks E9X M3 Illuminated DCT Shift Paddle Set
Storm Motorwerks are proud to present the most luxurious E9X DCT Paddles ever to be made. CNC machined and laser cut from billet aluminum, these E9X shift paddles have been designed and developed with the feedback and input from fellow enthusiasts. Each set is hand assembled and finished to ensure no detail is missed.
We have incorporated self powered illumination into our paddles. No need for an external power source so no wiring required. Since the illumination is not with LEDs - the light is a subtle glow rather than a sharp distracting light allowing you to maintain focus on the road. The light itself is amber in color to match the E9X M3 dash.
Since the vials are glass and have a thickness, the + sign is achieved using one vial behind the other. When in use on the steering wheel, the paddles are facing the driver head-on and both vials are perfectly visible. More importantly, at night, the illumination is clear and uniform forming the + symbol beautifully.
The rear of the paddles feature a machined a constant chamfer all the way around which mates with the chamfer on the paddles providing a comfortable surface for shifting with your fingertips.
Naturally these had to be larger than the standard items - however the feedback we got from M3 owners was that they shouldn't be so large as to look out of place. So our design strikes the right balance between size and aesthetic.
