I've got bog standard Mercedes paddles and some aluminium extensions waiting to be fitted. Much cheaper than AMG or Brabus paddles: cost me £75 total.
The steering wheel dremelling starts tonight!


Do you have part numbers, photos etc of the standard MB paddles, please?


I'll post some photos and part numbers tomorrow but I'm not 100% happy with the way they fit so far

I've spent a little more time on one of the paddles. They need to fit a little deeper than I had planned to account for the mis-matching curvature of the wheel and the paddle.

Not my neatest work but it looks better once the fixing screw is tightened. The other side should also be better now I've had some practice.

The paddle part numbers are A2185400662 and A2185400762.

The extensions were off eBay, I wanted black aluminium and these were the nicest finish based on the photos and they look pretty good.

I have set the paddles as far outboard as I can get them without touching the leather. It will be ok but I might make some custom extensions that take them further outboard- I'll only know that once I start using them though.

Some photos of the work so far:

Thanks for the pictures Aero, they also look good. I saw the extenders on eBay, are they nice quality? ..

I'm thinking of going down the AMG route as it seems to be the most common theme, but will be interested in seeing how those turn out!

I'm pleasantly surprised by the extenders, lots of the others look terrible in the pictures but these are nicely finished with no dodgy machining. The coating is nice and thick and they fit well

Ref mounting of paddles I am sure that someone on here was developing a mounting block to move them outboard of wheel. Might be worth trying
Sorry hopeless at searching on forum for it but l am sure someone will find it😀

So in case anyone was interested, the paddles are all sold out in UK/Ger Merc Dealers... Lead time is about a month to get them ordered in.

Can we not use the FVD paddles? Are they sold seperately

Best
