It's very doable, but if your car isn't already equipped with paddles, it's going to be an expensive process. I think I priced it at or over $800. Not worth it in my opinion.
I also found when pressing the paddle shifters the transmission would shift super slow. Are you saying that if you were to use the stick shifter for manual shifts, the transmission shifts will be quicker?Hi, S owner here. Don't waste your money. The paddle shifters are horrible with this tranny.I used them once. Slow as crap. Use the floor shifter.
I guess I'm a silly guy. I knew I was buying a gentlemen's express and not a race car, but this tranny just drives me crazy. Wife's Lincoln is is better in this regard.I use my paddle shifters every time I drive. I have tested multiple different ways and notice no difference in response time between the paddle shifters and shift lever.
The transmission is a little slow, but saying the car needs a manual transmission is just silly, considering it still shifts 10x faster than I ever could manually. I agree about DCT though.
I am not sure we have a consensus yet; I have seen reports of both non-Sports being wired and not being wired. Even if the wiring exists, you need an entirely new steering wheel to get the cutouts for the paddles (be extra careful with the clockspring -- those buggers love to pop out and fall apart).So ,these are on Z1's Site
Are these just Plug and play? Are all Q60 Wired for them
