Upgrade to Paddle Shifters on F30

Hey everyone. I am trying to figure out if anyone has added paddle shifters to their F30 yet? I have a base line 328 and my friend is upgrading his steering wheel on his 135is and will make me a killer deal on it. Just looking to confirm it can be done, works and if there are any tricks.

It can be done if you're willing to buy a whole new steering wheel with shifters etc and pay for wiring etc but retrofitting paddles to a wheel without them is a no go from what i understand

Sweet got the wheel and paddles covered. Any idea where I can find the wiring?

You need to find a solid aftermarket BMW speciality shop and work with them on it. If you have the wheel and paddles, thats the bulk of cost and parts.. Find a good shop, tell them what you want & they'll figure out the wiring. Thats the least of your worries.

For me, I already have the M Sport steering wheel, just w/out paddles, so paddle shifters are not so important to me that I'm going to get a whole new steering wheel w/paddle shifters, but I would definitely like to have them. Contrary to some, I'd probably use them often. I like driving aggressively w/both hands on the wheel.
