135i is it possible to add the paddles?

Would it be possible to add the paddle shifters to a 135i with automatic transmission? Thanks for any help that could be offered.

Don't these come with paddle shifters already?

If you mean actual "paddles" Burger offers some. They don't look easy or cheap (around $1000) to install. Literally 5 seconds worth of Google searching yeilds this.

let's change the topic then, how do u guys like paddles. I dont really like the paddles..., I just use the stick on my automatic cars. But then again, I rarely race em, so for me to use the shifter or the paddle it doesnt matter

Depends. But even if not for racing, many 1er here still feel MT allow you be a better driver.

OP, that will be a lot of money. You will have to switch the entire gear box.

I wasn't planning on switching it to MT. I was wondering because I am looking to buy a 135. I found one that would be perfect the only thing is it is automatic without the paddles. Only going to track it a few times a year. Finally joining the family.

if you want MT feel, wouldn't shifting with the stick be more similar than the paddles?
