Paddle shifter coding

Hi everyone,

I'm looking forward to do a non-sport steering wheel (without paddle shifter) to M3 DCT paddle shifter steering wheel conversion. FYI, my car is a 2006 325i.
The DIY for the swap is already on the list and I believe I can do the conversion.
What I want to know is about the coding or whatever it takes after the installation to make the paddle shifter works.

As far as I know, I need to program/code something to make the paddle shifter works since my previous steering wheel does not have paddle shifter. I don't have any idea about coding anyway. Is that right?
Could somebody or experienced help me with this issue?

I contacted the dealer and they'll charge me about $100 to make my paddle shifter works. If I can do it myself then it's not necessary to go to the dealer because I believe this is a simple one.

Appreciate if you guys could help.
