    We are freshly stocked up on paddles after having just completed a production run. We are so certain you will love them that we will pay the shipping to take them back with a full refund if you are not delighted with your purchase. Installs in 5 minutes right on your driveway with included tools and does not require disconnecting the battery or anything. As easy as changing a light bulb. More info and online ordering at www.carbonio.com

    It really is that easy. The only key is the make sure the screw is not cross threaded. I’m excellent with tools etc and I actually did this on one of the bottom screws making the paddle seam a little less “sharp” with shifting. I took it off and re did it (another 3 min) and it’s perfect.

    To avoid this I recommend gettting each screw started the then sequentially tightening them a little at a time until they are both flush and tight.

    This really has to do with how the original paddles are placed at the factory as the new extended paddles are outstanding in quality and do match the CF perfectly.

    Thank you for the feedback. Agreed it is best practice with any mechanical assembly to start all screws before tightening any of them down. Enjoy the drive!

    Hey Bud, question. Where did you buy the trunk bonnet? I've looked everywhere for one, no luck? Appreciate the help.

    I'm looking to order these. Does anyone know what the Import Duty is to bring into the UK?

    I've tried contacting Carbonio for the last week with no response?

    Is there a UK supplier for these paddle shifts or another version available?

    They might be on year-end vacations? ;)
    I had these paddles shipped to France some time ago, there were some import duties but I do not remember how much (with VAT that was significant, maybe 20 to 30%).
    I can confirm this is a brilliant modification and far better than the standard paddles.
    I think Ferrari is now proposing some extended paddles as part of the Genuine program, they have a different shape but you may try to check that.

    My 488 arrived today and the first job was to fit my recently purchased Carbonio Extended Shifter Paddles.

    This really is a 5 minute job to do and the quality of the paddles is excellent. :D

    Fantastic service from Rob @ Carbonio and I can highly recommend them for anyone who hasn't already done this simple modification.

    I also added the Tricolor badge to the rear which I really like :)

    Our extended shift paddles continue to be a popular upgrade and we are happy to announce that we have stock and worldwide shipping available. We are often asked how easy installation is and the following video should show how very easy it is with the included tool:
