i dont know if its been talked about before, but i was in my friends newer (05 i think) 330i convertible, and she had the paddle shifters!
they were the same ones that are in the new E92 335i (same look and everything)
this is the first time i have ever seen an E46 with them! i even tried doing a google search for pics, but couldent find a thing.
her car isnt a Preformance Package either, its just a regular 330CiC with sport.
Someone advise... was it an option/std. what?
