335IS DCT Wheel and Paddles Retrofit to 335I Sport

I have a 2008 BMW 335i and was wondering if I can install a 2011 335IS Sport wheel on my car? I installed the wheel, it fit obviously but the paddles don't work.

I have a parts car so I just tried it out to see if it would work. I didn't go out and buy it. I searched and found a retrofit for cars that don't have the paddles at all and a retrofit where you change the how they shift using original paddles. Couldn't find a swap from standard to DTC paddles.

My situation might be different. I swapped the whole wheel and my paddles are different from the ones shown in that thread. I took a sport steering wheel off a 2011 335IS. The paddles i have are the black ones with a silver trim and also have the + and - . If they are plug and paly, then something is up with my wiring.

I ended up using my stock sport paddles on the IS steering wheel and made the paddles work differently. So now my Left paddle is for down shifting only and the right paddle is to up-shift. No matter what i tried, the IS paddles wouldn't work. Maybe they are broken?
