not true mine works in D and so is my friends 335...but heard the older modles like the 06 and early 07 had the problem where you cant use paddle on D but yours is 08 so not sure maybe update software from the dealer?

Yep, only newer cars, 08/09+ seem to have the paddles go straight out of D.

The issue has been researched extensively by member Pseudo Nim and no solution found.

Apparently the cutoff is 09/2007 production. If the car is produced after, paddles should work straight from D just by following the DIY wiring guide.

I'm going through wiring diagrams to see if there is a possible solution for pre 09/2007 cars (such as mine).
