Makes paddle shifters FUN in a Hyundai
Objectively, this kit is a huge upgrade over OEM hardware. Quality components and machining come together in this case to create a final product that feels refined & very solid. Compared to stock, the actuation feels much more definitive, almost like switching from a membrane keyboard to a mechanical one. Due to the solid housing, they are also far easier to reliably activate using the very ends of the paddles. I agree with the other reviewer that the edges of the paddles are fairly sharp. Not so much that I worry I might cut my fingers, but sharp enough to be a bit uncomfortable. This is a little disappointing given the premium cost of the materials. I was also disappointed to find the packing material was a bit more minimal than I would have expected, and resulted in some cosmetic damage to my shifter housings. Luckily the damage isn’t actually visible once they’re installed, so no big deal in this case. One thing that made me scratch my head was that the +/- symbols are purposefully printed off center, presumably for better optics once they're installed. I wound up installing the paddles in reverse so that the "fronts" appear blank instead. I prefer this look and it might be nice to see some more customization options for the paddles. Overall I’m very satisfied and the install was pretty easy. Glad to see more Hyundai support from SXTH and glad to help support the development of more good stuff.
