Mine turn with the wheel, and they're basically impossible to use while steering.

To be honest, and probably mostly because of that, I mostly use the gearstick instead when in manual, unless I'm really pressing on.

Mine turn with the wheel and I find them ok.

I would still have a proper manual gearbox than a semi auto though and do it the old fashioned way.

This is why they should be fixed to the column. Like on the Giulia.

I don't know if it was EVO or a GT/TG review, or another video, referring to paddles which move with the wheel being essentially an after-thought. Not designed to be there from the off.
