Will these paddles fit the BMW performance steering wheel with blue stripe?

Will these LCI DCT paddles fit the BMW performance steering wheel with the blue stripe?

These are the paddles that I currently have:

This is the steering wheel that I'd like to get if the paddles that I have will fit properly:

They should fit if the wheel has the paddle cutouts. Another question to ask is, "does it work with your car?" Depends if you have LCI or not.

Now I'm not entirely sure, but if you're pre-LCI, then I think those paddles may not work. But I'm not sure. Take a search around and you should find the answer.

I guess that the real question is whether the M3 vs the LCI non-M3 paddles are interchangeable with each other. If so, then my LCI non-M3 paddles should fit into this wheel.

They just would not physically fit?

Yes, they would physically not fit. Also, while I was at it I just went complete retrofit with BMW M3 style harness that will produce upshifts with + and downshifts with - , instead of pull for upshift and push for downshift.
