Paddle shift Retrofit possibility on E70 X5 LCI

Anyone know if it is possible to retrofit the shift paddles on to a 2012 E70 xdrive 35i?

If yes, are there any write up? and part number for the shift paddle??

Thanks !!

Good question, i'd like to do the same. I already have the M Steering wheel with paddles.
Steering wheel is different, and there are 2 paddle options, those from the M or from the 2012-13's with factory paddles on the 35 and 50, they look a little different from the M paddles.

i added a post to the attached thread: http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...installed.html

I was going to add paddles to my 08 LCI 550 before i sold it, and there was a write up on that, so i'm sure it must be possible with the X5.
