Paddle shifters

Ordered paddle extensions from scgarageworks.com that arrived today and took only 5 minutes to put in. Really helps to break up the sea of black in the US spec cars. Really liking how they look and feel so far. Feel free to leave any feedback good or bad.

I think you've just sold me on paddle extensions! I'm curious how the color will hold up though with the sun beating down on it most summer days.

How are they functionally? They do look good, but how's doing some quick shifts from the top of them? Do they feel really sturdy on shifts without putting too much uneven pressure on the stock paddles? Do they feel like they're on there reliably and tight?

Insert sarcastic, witty comment here.

Pretty much off topic, but how does this transmission compare to the VW GTI DSG? Same experience?

It is my understanding that VW's DSG can be jerky on the first 2 gears (as in normal manual gearbox) where as Hyundai's DCT tries to simulate torque converter to appeal more to the NA customers that are more custom to smooth shifting of an automatic and jerking = bad design.

It doesn't, IMO. DSG is more refined, quicker shifts.

100% agree. Had few generations of GTI all manual but my mk7 spent weeks in the shop and the loaner was GSW DSG 1.8 and compared to the DCT I have on my Elantra it quite different. Very fast, logic was a bit off (run to 6th) but not worse than DCT but the paddles provided instant shifts. The DCT has a delay in engagement. Same/similar boxes used in the R and Audi S cars so they can handle 400 torque easy. Big after market with many DSG tunes and ability to increase clutch pack clamping pressure etc. the DCT is fragile being a dry box not designed for much torque. The Elantra is a perfect daily as is in my opinion.
