I'd like to know as well. My E90 M3 paddles felt perfect, these don't.

Would love those in aluminum. It would be nice if the M6 paddles were available to us. These plain paddles were most definitely an oversight on BMW's part.

Completely agree - do we know if the M6 part will/won't work with the M5 steering wheel?

I tried. They will not work. Physical difference in the attachment to the steering wheel.

Bump.

Has anyone uncovered an alternative to the full M6 steering wheel retrofit? I just want taller paddles! These things are too friggin short when pushing the car hard.

There must be an aftermarket solution out there, no?

Emailed them after seeing this and got a reply right away. Inquired about the NA01C and Steve said they will fit the F10 M5 perfectly. These paddles run 299.00 + shipping. No need to remove the steering wheel but the airbag needs to come out.

Thinking seriously about ordering a pair.

Do it! I want to try them as well. Do you have any specifics on size? It's hard to tell in the pics just how much bigger/longer they are than stock.

(that's what she said)

Ha. Same here. I think the brushed aluminum is a much better fit with our interiors.

Well bad news...Got them today and they do not fit. They said they had a F10 M5 and confirmed the NA01's would work. They just refunded my payment and I'm shipping them back on Monday. I wanted those to work...

Yep, they just sent me an email saying they don't fit and to return mine too - because you told them Warehouser.

Bummer man...these stock paddles blow. C'mon BMW, stop cheaping out on these critical parts for your performance brand.
