07 335 steering wheel and paddle shift upgrade w/pics

Just upgraded my 07 e90 with steering wheel and paddles from 2012 135dct. I love how the steering wheel feels in my hands. :-)
The paddles I had to remove the resistors and do some soldering. Got it from http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=540684

Then you need to try an M3 or Performance wheel!

Nice upgrade - looks great with the LCI paddles!

I wouldn't call that hard work. Took me maybe an hour for everything. And plus those parts cost me $0. And hard work I would consider changing out the suspension, installing downpipes or pulling out and engine. That was a piece of cake for me. :-)

Yeah I tried tinting my windows before. Didn't go so well. That you need a lot of patience. But this was pretty straight forward.
