Push-Pull Paddle Shifter Conversion

In a past life I owned a 2007 335i. One of the things I loved about the car was the push-pull paddle shifters - where each has the capability to downshift (push) and upshift (pull) as opposed to the pull-pull shifters on the e92 m3 where the left paddle downshifts exclusively and right paddle upshifts. I am curious if anyone on this forum has completed or has heard of a conversion from the standard pull-pull paddles on the e92 m3 to the push-pull paddles of the 335i? Examples of the push pull shifters below.

I loved those paddles on my old 2009, but I also really love the normal pull - pull paddles. I don't think the mod is worth the price, IMO

Thumbs up Push-Pull

I had push-pull in my Mini. I can only use one arm, and these shifters were ideal. I have just bought a 6 series with pull-pull shifters and I will be changing them; one way or another!

you'd need a completely new button on both sides for the opposite shifting, not worth it
