F30 M Tech Steering Wheel Retrofit

Hi all, I'm pretty new to this and not sure how much help I'll get, but here it goes!
I'm going to attempt a retrofit but I don't want to start it and reverse it halfway due to missing parts, cables, harness.

I have an F30 335 (NP39571) that I want to install install and M steering wheel on. I already have a donor M steering wheel from another F30 320 (F986549) that I will be using.

Few questions:
1) Will this be a plug n play installation?
2) My other option is to purchase a different r M steering wheel with paddle shifters from eBay. IF I go that route, what is the process to wire the paddle shifters?

Thanks so much for ya'lls help!

All i know is you have to run another wiring harness if your current steering wheel doesn't have paddles and you want them

It's a plug-and-play, mine took some 30 minutes to install. The hard part is removing the original. I think you car need to come with the paddle to have the option.
