2011 BMW 528i: BMW Got The Paddles Right
March 02, 2011
That's the upshift paddle on our 528i's steering wheel. It's placed well, turns with the wheel and stops with a deliberate but damped thud and at the end of its travel.
And there are more reasons why it's awesome.
Here's another feature that makes the paddles satisfying to use: When your fingertips wrap around the wheel and land on the paddle, they touch this rubber pad embedded in its backside.
