S2T Performance Products Company Installation:
After your purchase, if you don't feel comfortable installing the S2T Performance paddles on your factory Audi shifter switches, you may contact us prior to sending your OEM shifter switches to our facility...and we will perform the modification for you.
S2T Performance Products will mail the completed switches back to you (usually within 5 business days).
S2T offers this courtesy for free! The only expense to you is the cost of shipping both ways.
While you are awaiting return delivery, please remember that your vehicle can be driven without the OEM shifter switches installed in your car.
