Recieved my paddles today from Vitesse, the install sheet they sent me was for 2010-2011 Camaro, is the install procedure the same for the V ?
was thinking maybe they sent wrong ones. no b/s or invoice with a part number.

If your V is a 2010 or 2011, then it will fit .

They didn't send me any install directions..weird. They are nice though, and easy to install.

got my Vitesse Motorsport paddles installed, took it for a rip, work good and look good. took longer to peel the foam out of the old buttons than it did to install.

Yep, the trick is just being careful and not breaking the stock tabs. They are very delicate plastic pieces unfortunately. Keep a very fine flat head in the car for removing them or adjusting.

I had some foam, no slip mat for too drawers and other stuff, similar to what to use to keep your phone from slipping off a dashboard. I just cut it to fit and use that. They operate perfectly. I can even use my pinky fingers. I feel like they give you a lot more flexibility with activating the buttons, which mean manual mode is more usefull. I particularly like the bottom extension, as I can keep my hands in my lap, and or my arm on the door rest and manually shift more comfortably. Its just quite as fun as rowing gears, but honestly I don't miss it in this class of a car, and like that I'm not forced to be manual when I don't feel like it. Nothing is lost on a luxury oriented GT cruiser.
