CVT Paddles Successfully Retrofitted

Some of you CVT owners out there may remember a post awhile back regarding the retrofitting of the Euro spec CVT steering wheel paddles on a US spec CVT MINI. Well it looks like the retrofitting was a complete success:

I am happy to announce that the retrofit is a success! I know the picture of Mini paddles doesn't really excite the non-US Mini CVT drivers, but here it is: http://home.comcast.net/~paddle.shift/US_CVT_PaddleShiftretro.jpg

Here's the cooper I worked on: http://home.comcast.net/~paddle.shift/miniyellow.jpg

Thanks again for your help.
