whats wrong with paddle shifters? i have them too
EDIT: Hold up, wait. So the paddle shifters are part of the steering column and not the wheel? Please help me understand. I'm confused now. Also, link to the CF shifter?

The paddle shifters are attached to the OEM steering wheel and the BuddyClub steering wheel doesn't have them so it's not suitable for any trim level that has the paddle shifters. Unless you're fine with losing that functionality.

The paddle shifters are part of the wheel. They have 2 small locator nipples and is mainly secured and held on with 1 screw. You'll have to cut off one of the nipples, takes less than 5 seconds.

Everything works without issues and fitment is perfect (exception for cutting off the small locator nipple on the paddle shifter). Picture from my previous post is proof that the BuddyClub wheel fits with paddles.

Ah, ok. So there’s just slight modifications you have to do. Could you explain what you mean about cutting off the locator nips?

Green - screw hole
Red - nipple hole 1
Blue - nipple hole 2

The paddle shift will have 2 nipples;one that goes into blue and one into red and then a single screw that goes through the green to hold the paddle shifter in place.

The buddy club wheel does not have one of the red or blue circled holes...I forget which one but I think it's the red. Because the buddyclub wheel doesn't have that hole, you just have to cut the nipple on the paddle shifter meant for the corresponding hole so it sits properly.

Thanks man! That’s super helpful. Do you think you could PM this to me?

There'll always be hate, don't let that bring you down. Personally not a fan of the color scheme, but I respect your decisions. At-least you had the courage and confidence to do it, than just saying you'll do it. It's like saying "Oh I hate your track car because it's not stanced", they all have different purposes.

Put the rest of my husky mats in, as well as a picture of the toddler $#!+ Kicker protector
Can't believe how well the husky mats fit. I've had weather tech in my past two cars, and they fit ok... But these are outstanding.

I installed paint protection on the front bumper/hood/fenders/mirror and then gave her a nice wash and ceramic coating after.

Where did you get that toddler kicker protector? I’ll be needing one soon.

I bought the OEM seat cover (covers all three backs and the bench itself). I myself try to clean each week (i bring my kids to my in-laws five days per week so it does get messy back there), but it's good to know i have the seat cover. My oldest is now in a front-facing seat and I put a universal seat protector/organizer on the back of my driver's side seat. When he kicks or occassionally throws/drops his drink, the seat is protected (usually).
