Old paddles or new?

Hi everyone, these look like the old paddles but they are on an LCI, is that even possible?

You sure you're not confusing DSG padles with normal Auto Sport padles?

I could be wrong I wasn't aware of LCI's having different paddles for auto Sport boxes

They are different mine has - on the left and + on the right and they only move one way i.e. towards you.

The paddle change wasn't part of the LCI upgrade i think BM changed it last year sometime.

I preffer the Pre LCI if im honest, my dads F10 has the - / + type and my E92 has the older type. I like the fact you can click up or down a gear with one hand, rather than needing two hands, what if I broke my left hand but wanted to drop a couple of cog's quicksharp to overtake a lesser car!?

I prefer the earlier version. I'm planning on retrofitting them to my 330d.

the lci paddles have a smaller movement and are more positive, i have them retrofitted to the 335d and on the e93 i have the chrome ones, when i sell the 335 im transferring the lci paddles to the e93
