Default Shift Koncepts paddle extensions

So the owner of Shift Koncepts reached out to me about trying some new paddle extentions he had develoved and give him some feedback so I said sure. They arrived within a week or so, well packaged. He sent them to me with a CF sticker on the face thats removable. They easily snap into place and make locating the paddles quite easily. They dont wobble in anyway and allow shifting from every location except the very tip at the top, at that point you cant put enough pull on it to make it shift. Otherwise feel is good and make for quick locating of the paddles with your hands. They area large enough to block a bit the low end of the RPMs (<1000) and speedometer (>145) depending on the angle of your seat. There is still some fine tuning to do in the finish dept to get the plastic smooth all the way around, just depends on which side he prints on. I will try to figure out what I can do on my end to improve that finish. Well on to the pics...

They are nice but need to be a slight bit smaller IMO. Thanks for sharing!

OK, I'll bite.

What is the point? Is this for looks or for some weird way of using the paddles which I do not understand?

No point. Just in case you run into these on the interwebs in the future now you've seen them on a car and know my thoughts so you won't have to experiment with them.

Looks. The stock paddles are thin plastic and cheap looking.
Personally, after getting to play with an Alfa Romeo Giulia over the weekend, it's column mounted magnesium paddles or bust.
