F30 M-Sport Paddle Shifters to F13 M6 Paddle Shifters

Hi, I have f30 335xi with full M-Sport Package. I have normal paddle shifters, but want to change them with f13 m6 paddle shifter. Is that possible? Is that plug&play? Eventually how much it cost? I want these paddle shifters, i love them!

I think you would have to change the whole setup, meaning you gotta buy that steering wheel. No shame in that, the coloured stitching is really sweet. Let us know how much it costs!

But the steering wheels are the same except the stitching. I think I can change only the paddles

Not to sway you, but I like our paddle shifters better, because the f13 look a bit dainty. But the wheel with the stitching is awesome!

M6 paddle shifts are listed as separate parts in the ETK.

I have looked at this option as well. Not so much the design has my preference, it is more that the M6 paddles have a different form that seems to stretch more to the outside of the steering wheel, making them easier to reach.

I have asked the dealer about this and they say that it is not possible since all paddles are mounted in a specific way. I doubt it since the ETK shows that the M6 wheel and the M Sport wheel look very much the same. Also the picture of the M6 paddles and the F30 paddles seem to show that the mounts are similar. I'am not technical enough to know for sure.

Because the tri-color stitching is exclusive to real M cars
