Just did it on my E91 - success I can change gears even when in D (Alpina software). However I think I broke my slip ring - it gives a click sound every revolution now. :/ Damn!

Edit: One very peculiar thing; When I first drove it, it was pulling right, just like when you have a flat tire and when i drove about 50km/h I could feel that it tried to brake just slightly every 0.5 second or so.
I think it was the ESP that was trying to "get to drive straight" since the steering angle sensor has been reset when I disconnected the battery. After I reset the steering angle sensor - it went away.

Does anyone know which steering wheel will work that has the paddles with the Burger Motorsports wiring harness? I'm waiting for it to be delivered but I want to order the steering wheel and have it when the harness gets here. My car is a 2008 335i convertible with NAV..

So there's 2 wires that go from the steering column to the shifter. Can anyone please note which wire goes to the blue at the shifter and which goes to the blue/yellow at the shifter?

Thanks

To answer my own question, the yellow/black wire at the steering column needs to be connected to the blue/yellow wire at the shifter and the yellow/white wire needs to be connected to the blue/grey wire.

I have a 2011 M-Sport 335d without paddles. Can I add paddles to the existing steering wheel? Thanks all

Could You find some pics to show about it; I'm going to start the retrofit on 330xd, but after millions of reading pages on this subject I am a bit stuck with this section, still.
I mean, cutting the wires on the colum it's a bit unclear wihic ones and open the connector itself.

Thanks.

Thanks, but that doesn't answer my question about adding paddles to a non-paddled M-Sport steering wheel.
