Do the M3 DCT paddles fit exactly the same on the M3 wheel as they do on the M sport wheel? I noticed you got both but ended up preferring the M sport wheel. Something is leading me to believe that there will be more of a gap between the paddles and the wheel (paddles closer to the turn/wiper stalks) on the M sport wheel than on the M3 wheel. Is that true?

Regarding the "incorrect" resistance reading for the "-" paddle, R2 in the photo looks like it's closer to the paddle and when it's sitting closer to the connector in the diagram. Could that be why the reading is off? Obviously, the set up still works for you, but that may be why.

One last thing, this thread <> shows R2 (in your diagram) being a 348ohm resistor, where you have a 300ohm resistor. Is the difference small enough that it doesn't matter?

Thanks for putting this DIY together. Very informative. I just ask a lot of questions. :P
