Not only did I come up with a kit to retrofit your cruze to have paddle shifters. I started refurbishing CRUZE steering wheels and adding the paddles. I can only do so many things to the wheels but I think what I have come up with transforms the wheel into something very custom. I can do alot of different colors and materials. This one pictured I did for a customer. The more I build the more samples I will post up over time. It will come pretty much with any color paddles almost any color trims. I try to offer only leather wrapped. But I can do rubber base style wheel as well. The kit will also some with the wiring kit as well. No tune is required for the transmission. For an extra cost I can do a suede style wheel as well. A basic wheel with the harness and paddles will be cheaper. I'm trying to do a kit for about $400-450 with a wheel and harness. I will be trying to get my kit prices down to the $300 range.
Super CRUZES can keep the costs down by finding decent second hand steering wheels and building the kit off of them. The other option is buying brand new ones from GM. This is more expensive but the wheel will have zero use on it. Pictured here is another example of a custom wheel built for a customer.
This wheel was used for my prototype to test if this was a kit I could produce for the community. The cruise control button is missing for one reason only. I forgot to install it for the pictures LOL. I rewired this wheel so the paddles will work on a cruze and designed my wire harness to be basically a plug and play type of install. This picture should give you a good indication of how the paddles will sit on your wheel in your view. I have the kit default set to soon as you put the car in M mode the paddles will take over your shifting not the shifter. If you want I can also wire it up so you can choose which type of shifter you want to run by flipping a switch.
