This is for a set of the AutoTecknic Dry Carbon Fiber Battle Version Shift Paddles for the BMW G05 X5 and the G07 X7. It's a direct replacement to the OEM shift paddles.
As purists ourselves, we understand the goals of all car enthusiasts—to go as fast as possible while maintaining safety and a comfortable position in the pilot’s seat at the same time. When it comes to piloting a vehicle, the driver is at optimum control when they become one with the car. In order to bring that concept to reality, we developed these extended paddle shifters.
During this meticulous development process, we wanted to craft a set of paddles which would maximize the communication between the driver, steering wheel, and of course, the M dual-clutch transmission. To achieve this ideal, our paddles are designed to be 40% bigger compared to OEM ones. On top of that, the shape of the paddles is perfectly matched to the exact contours of the steering wheel, to provide optimal feedback for perfect shifts every time!
Dry carbon fiber's name comes from its manufacturing process. Dry carbon fiber is formed by using a "pre-preg" or impregnated piece of carbon materials. This piece of carbon is first placed into a mold, and then into a sealed autoclave to properly cure. This particular method creates the least amount of waste and forms a lighter version of carbon than the “wet” method. The autoclave vacuuming process of making dry carbon means that there are fewer pinholes and virtually no air pockets that form in the carbon. Dry carbon is the highest-quality version of carbon fiber products that are produced.
