Would it be a straight forward operation, like plug and play type of thing to add paddle.

My local retailer sell OEM paddle from 3 series, wonder if they could fit on mine.

Thanks for your answers.

I have found that I don't use them very much, even at the track for HPDEs. The computer program for sport mode is very good and you can always use the shifter.

But others swear by the paddles so to each his own. I just wouldn't spend a lot for them.
