I've looked into this from the M5(same as M6) for my non M e92. There's going to be an additional wiring setup for sure to light it up as for the paddles to fit the mounting area of the rear of the steering wheel, I never got that far. But the DCT paddles you guys have are a direct plug and play on non M e9x with paddle shifting.

hmm sucks! bmw is getting cheaper...or i just bought the cheapest M... they should have made it across the board for all M's since they were being producing (lighted ones) for M6 and M5
Tx for your input tho!

Or you're driving a 3 series. BMW, and every other manufacturer for that matter, always does little things like this for higher-up models.

Like i said... it is still part of the "M" group and its still a 70k car...
Infact the 3 series shifters are better then the DCT-M3

And the M6 costs $110k+. Somewhere in that gap they've accounted for upgrades and novelties.
