Paddle Shifter

So talk to me about adding paddle shifters. Is that a possible thing to do in a non-sport?

I saw a facebook post about this on one of the pages. Someone said their signature edition wasn't pre-wired.

It was possible on my 2010 g37x, non-sport. Just pulled off the steering column cover to verify it was pre-wired then ordered the sport steering column cover and the paddles.

That would be my recommendation, check to see if you are prewired. If its anything like my g37x. It'll be wires taped below the steering column with tape, not connected to anything.

This is something that'd be interesting to find out. Aren't they steering wheel mounted rather than on the steering column?

I think that would mean this issue isn't being pre-wired, but, possible a clock spring and necessary parts for the steering wheel would be needed.

If it is a possibility, it would most certainly be more involved than the old G37's and Q50's.

Okay, may or may not help. So, we will see.

According the catalog, it is interesting that the steering switches are only available as an assembly with the steering wheel itself. I'm sure that may change should there ever be a quality issue with steering wheel switches functioning or in their finish. But, the paddles are available separately. Part number is 25549-6AV0A. This is first thing to figure out and it's done. Screenshot attached.

But, the next questions would prove more useful:

-Where's the trim to accommodate for paddle shifters? Could find that in the catalog.
-Where do this paddle shifters hook up? Is it the clockspring or are the connectors on the dash harness? I think so. But, as you can see from the second screenshot, can't really determine much. That's the image used for all applicable dash harnesses.

My thoughts is this may very well be a pipe-dream killed off early. To put paddle shifters on will take quite a bit of very expensive trial and error.

From using past experience, to get the trim around the paddle shifters, if a separate part designation isn't shown in the catalog, that means you have to get a steering wheel as it comes with it.

For the connectors, if they are a part of the clock spring, which clock spring would be able to work? There's 4 options without a VIN. A VIN would help narrow it down, but, still no guarantee.

Then, if all was hooked up, will it work? The older cars being setup from the factory to allow for paddle shifters was a sweet and easy upgrade. This one is definitely more involved.

Forgive me if I ramble and don't make much sense. It's early, I'm in a rush, and typing as I think progressively.

This was done on a Q50...not sure if that means we could use it, it is aftermarket. Check out the video.

This is a vid for column-mounted shifters. Different setup.

@JoeRoke and I did try to see if we could figure it out to no avail. Not saying it's impossible, just an expensive trial and error with OEM parts. His and my trial-and-error came with an aftermarket steering wheel sent to him that incidentally included the paddle shifters.

I am sure there will be some aftermarket companies selling various sets/kits soon. I have the RS, but some bigger carbon fiber paddles would be dope lol
