Can you swap the dual-clutch tranny from the iS into an '07 335i?

I have a friend who has come into possession of a wrecked '12 335is. He's trying to part it out and offered to sell me the dual-clutch transmission in it to swap into my '07 335i. He claims it's basically a simple swap, plug-and-play. I'm not so sure it's quite that easy.

So, my question is can this be done?

It might be a plug-and-play direct swap, but it will still be a ton of work to actually perform said swap.

Even if it fits physically, you had better know somebody who's a master at coding, doing software updates, and/or swapping out components. Maybe if you had an '12 E92, but an '07?

wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to just trade in for 335is vs swap/maintaince/headache of a swap??
