They are the same. 335is DCT has a different shifter.

If we're talking MT, the M-sport shifter is different than the standard one.

then there wouldn't be anything different. The only different AT shifter is the DCT, which I don't care for (shifter, not transmission), but the performance from it is amazing.

I think the paddle shifters were changed in late 2010 or 2011.

Paddle shifters were changed in 2011. I've personally tried swapping the LCI into the pre-LCI and it ends up shifting up or down on its own. The pre-LCI has 3 wires per paddle... one negative, one positive, and a ground. The LCI only has 2. Didn't know WTF was going on, so I traded it for an X5 and now I feel like I drive around a pig.

What.

you traded a 3 for a X5 because of the paddles shifters?
