Msport Steering wheel fitted paddles not working

As you can see i have just fitted the Msport wheel with paddle shift.
Stereo controls work but, not the paddle shift, would it need coding?

Did you have paddles before?

If not then you need a bit more wiring, there are a few DIY threads around here for retrofitting paddles to a car which didn't come with them. A couple of places actually sell the wiring harness, or you can make it yourself by buying some wire and some connectors from BMW.

Did you swap the paddles over or did you use the new paddles with the new wheel?

Because i seem to rememeber reading somwehere that LCI paddles and pre-LCI paddles had slightly different wiring.

I reckon you might.

Disconnect battery, switch on headlights, remove airbag, etc.

Just the airbag so you can get to the screws and the wiring plugs.

Any ideas what it's worth? I will be selling it and i haven't a clue!
It'll be complete with slip ring and wiring, i know as i fitted it in the first place (and wrote the install guide which is on BabyBMW!).
