Thanks Steve. I was happy with mine, and a few friends have been happy with theirs. But today's response was slightly better than I imagined (and we missed you, btw...)

I understand. I originally did this so I could pretend I had a little more control over my trans, but I never anticipated I would use the paddles as much as I do. Today, driving my manual toy, I found myself searching for the paddles. I want to change gears myself, but its so much easier when you can change gears with your hands on the wheel.

This is awesome. If I had an auto I'd be in!

Thanks Scott, I was also disappointed I couldn't make it.
I Trust a good time was had by all. Things should get easier soon I think.

Have a good trip mate

This is a very good question, and I suspect it's a case of "you don't know what you're missing until you've tried it" - which is not to say that this mod is for everybody, but for some people, it will make a significant difference.

I drove Shorty with a manual transmission for many years, and never missed anything (other than more power, better handling and better fuel economy, but paddles don't help with that).

Before I bought my NT I had already witnessed the benefits that autos can offer under some conditions, primarily the super-fast gear changes under testing off-road conditions - try charging up a soft sand dune, and making a snap down-change when speed has dropped below peak torque. So the NT's Sports mode worked well to restore some measure of control to an automatic transmission.

But I'd experienced a Golf with the flappy paddles, and missed being able to control the transmission from the steering wheel. So the modification was originally developed primarily as a challenge, to see if it was possible. But once I started using it, I quickly realised how much more lively it made the vehicle, driving in Sports mode and using the paddles to ensure the right gear. And then I took it to the High Country, and discovered how much it changes the vehicle in the right circumstances. With fingertip control, gears can be changed up and down as often as you want, almost without thought, without removing your hands from the wheel. On some of the tracks, it's a constant balancing act to pick the right line, the right speed, the right gear. Obviously, this can be achieved in a manual, or in a standard auto, but having the ability to subconsciously change gears without moving your hands from the wheel creates a different driving experience. Better or worse is up to individual interpretation; but now that I have a vested interest I should keep quiet and let others with paddles offer their opinions.

VERY interested. Used to have a Subaru 3.0R with flappy paddles and really miss the feature.

Does the lever need to be across in Sports for the paddles to work? Eg, in the Subi, if you were in Auto and flipped a paddle it would down shift and then after a few seconds revert back to full auto. Great for zipping through round-abouts, as you get to the round-about, flip it down a gear or two, and then as you are exiting it would revert to auto and off you'd go on your merry way.

Incredible! Will definitely be saving up for one of those kits. Very generous of you to offer such an item mate. Hopefully I'll be sending you a pm sometime soon; we head off to the Cape again in June so preferably I'd like to sort it out before then

The Golf also worked that way, and the Mitsubishi paddles have "OFF" on the "+" paddle, so I guess factory installs work that way too. Unfortunately, my mod works in Sports mode only; I designed a circuit to do as you describe, but got lazy and installed my paddles without it.

Edit: m_and_m developed a plug & play addition to my paddle kit that provides full factory-like functionality for the paddles. Click --> Paddle-mate

Well I have a set fitted to my NW courtesy of nj swb, and I can say, that it is the best "driver feel mod" I have done to the Paj. I was a bit dubious at first, "why I already have sports mode, why do I need the paddles..?", but went ahead with it, well, because I could...
Around town I rarely used sports mode, but now find myself always using the paddles, so I decide what gear I am in (still a manual guy at heart), and the trans ecu is even nice enough to downshift to 1st and 3rd for me if I am feeling too lazy...
Offroad I always used sports mode anyway (as I said, still a manual die hard), but after 10 days in the High Country with nj, having the paddles made things so much nicer/easier.
Combine the paddles with a lock up kit, and I am as close to driving a manual as I can get

The wife's outlander can be in sports mode with the paddles without shifting the shifter across and remains in sports mode.
