    Hi All

    I live in the West Midlands area & are part of the G Paddle team , We need to test our newest Paddle that fits the S,CL & E 55 vehicle , The Paddle takes about 10 mins to fit & require no coding , cutting or mod'ing .
    So if you have a CL or E 55 (we have already tested on a S class) class with the OEM steering wheel & live local to me , We will come to you & only need about 1 hour of your time with a small test run . Please email us on
    gpaddles@gmail.com

    Cheers

    Andy

    Interesting. What are you actually offering?

    A simple paddle cover for existing steering wheel shifters? No coding can only mean one already has paddle shifters..

    A link to your product/website?

    Hi All

    All I require is someone with a CL or E 55 (buttons are standard) to let me pop out the button assy unscrew the switch , Then install the paddles ( two screws) & check the fitment , we already know the paddles work the gear shifting , All I am doing is checking finger clearance around the steering wheel. The parts are 3D printed parts before we go to full blown ABS injection moulding tooling. If I can find some one & if they like the G Paddles there could be a free set on offer after our tooling is complete.

    Cheers

    Do you fancy coming to Poole, Dorset?:D
    My E55 is a willing guinea pig.

    Looks like my E55, your S class and CL are the only models left that aren't ready yet.

    Hi All

    This is the Paddle I am finally finishing the design before we go to tooling , I am just making sure the design is fit for purpose , We have fitted them in a S Class no problems , So I need to make sure there are no differents with the E Class & CL Class . We hope to have the E,S & CL paddle for sale in a few months (if all goes well).


    flat6buster I will send you a PM cheers for the offer .

    Cheers

    Andy

    I kept accidentally hitting the buttons on my CLS55, could be exciting particularly when negotiating roundabouts!

    The large paddles on my RC are much better, no accidents and easier to find when needed ;)

    Yup. About three years ago I adapted a set of BMW paddles and fitted them to my stock buttons. Looks great and works perfectly.

    Hi, I'd be keen for a set of these. If we could get say a group of 10 interested buyers, would you consider a group buy discount rate for these?

    Cheers
