I like MaCarbon's wheel and paddles better than OEM. On the paddles, you can color match the "+" and "-" symbols to your car, so I was able to choose orange. On the wheel, you can opt for a thicker grip, 12 oclock ring, perforated leather, and various other options that aren't available on the OEM wheel. Again, the weave and color matches well and nobody can tell they are aftermarket, especially since the wheel and paddles have some distance between them and the surrounding OEM parts. I think if you were to install aftermarket pieces right next to OEM, for example on the center console, you may see some very slight variation. Everything from MAcarbon is quality though.
