I have used other attaching paddles like Leyo ones but after getting the ST2 well worth the money. So much better as they are full replacement ones. And yes you can reach the bottom with the B2. Still a little tougher to shift but thatís is all shifters as itís the way VW designed the mechanism which makes it easier for shiftin front the top and center compared to the bottom.

Have had these in red for 2 years.
No issues. No fading. Full tints however.
Shift from bottom? Never an issue.
Who should be shifting that low anyway. 10 and 2 or 9 and 3.
Get compliments at drive throughs.

Totally happy with these cheapies from EBay/AliExpress. They serve its purpose and I personally like the way they look. Plus I can't imagine getting longer extensions. The stalks, when pulled back, will rub on these extensions in certain positions. I imagine it would be worse with longer extensions.

Don't open at work or in front of children. Only three stars though. Oh, wait, you said DSG Paddles.

I'm enjoying mine.
In addition to the nice look, the three open areas make it easy to feel where you are on the paddle.
Plus, if your finger is in any one of those open areas, the paddle action works easily; this is in addition to the solid back area that's centered.

I had bought those cheapo ebay jobbies and they were total utter garbage in comparison to the Racelines.

I thought the holes in the RL were kind of gimmicky, but like you've observed also, it's a great spot to get a feel and grip of the paddle with just say your pinky.
