    Go to Mercedes dealer and ask for AMG S class paddles( don't ask me why) they are listed with a different part number than the E class ones even though they are exactly the same paddles. Say you represent a dealer( doesn't really matter which one) and need the wholesale price for their used car department and pay cash. cheapest way I know to get them(new)... GL

    Bump for all of the guys out there on the verge of doing the paddle shift mod and won´t because they can´t source the wiring kit or are scared about the install....get the tranzformer, the AMG paddles and a solder... it doesn´t get any easier than this.

    Good news for those of you that want the paddleshifters, and can´t source the wiring kit ( or don´t want the hassle of running wires thru steeing wheel, center console etc), please check the link below.Honestly, i think it didn´t get the credit it deserves

    PS: Because i am stuborn, i´ll keep exploring mi idea of avoiding the soldering by simply t-tap the wiring off the audio control steering switch....right now i am down to 4 wires as potential candidates....there are only twi of them to be wired plus the ground. Will post if i succeed.

    take care

    The issue is getting up the nerve to cut into a new or the steering wheel that came with the car.....

    That's the easy part. Take your time. I just don't like to solder. Pretty sure I'll burn the board up

    Did this mod two years ago and love it. Only took me about an hour and a half to do it and was very straight forward.

    Now all we need to do is get the Tranzformer coding updated so that if you pull both paddles at the same time it will toggle between Manual and Auto modes. Right now I have to put it in Manual Mode with the shifter before I can use the paddles.

    Would be great to just pull both paddles and have it switch so I don't have to take my hands off the wheel.

    If you do this, if you're in AutoStick the paddles will work for shifting (so will the volume buttons on the front of the wheel). If you're in Drive or any other position then the buttons and paddles will work the radio volume.

    TranZformer takes care of the actual shifting so there's no need to touch the clockspring, shifter, or anything else. And if you don't already have a tranzformer, that's an easy install itself.

    Here's what you'll need to do to add the AMG paddles:

    Disconnect battery - and leave off for 15 minutes before pulling airbag.
    Pop out the steering wheel buttons and unplug them.
    Install the paddles. Easier to install with steering wheel off car, but possible with it on.

    Take these buttons:


    Next, pop the back cover off the volume buttons:


    OK, now this is the board you'll see:



    OK, now solder on 3 wires to the board like this:



    Now pass the wires through the back cover and you're all set:


    Now you need to connect these 3 wires to the paddles. The black wire connects to the black wire on both paddles. Connect the yellow wire to the right paddle (upshift) and the grey wire to the left paddle (downshift).

    If you don't have a tranzformer you'll need one. Installation instructions on the www.zautotech.com website.

    I don't have this in my own car, it's just that I thought of it this morning. This is definatley on the to-do list for me as well.

    It's perfect for those with 2008-2010's as there are no other options. I used to make and supply the RF shifthammer, but honestly I never liked it so I stopped making them a long time ago. With the tranzformer AutoStick takes on a different meaning, as the delay from tap to shift is almost gone...
    What gauge wire should we use for this?

    Anyone know if you have to solder both black wires from each paddles (+/-) to the common ground spot on the switch board?

    The way I did it was to solder a single black wire to the board and then connect that wire to both paddle wires. Much easier as there is not a lot of room to solder multiple wires to the board

    Agreed, would like the soldering locations if anyone has them? Any help is appreciated.
