Yes. It can be added. If you're interested in the kit, please let me know.
If you have sport package with round airbag, you need to buy SMG wheel, paddles, and my kit.
If you have hexagonal airbag, you need to buy SMG wheel, paddles, airbag and my kit. Lots of members on this forum have gotten the kit.
Hi,

I have an E60 530i LCI with SAT. Would it be possible to change the OEM paddles with the M5 and make them working. I love the look and also the oparating way of the M5 better than the E60 OEM. I like up shift with the right paddle and downshift with the left one. Much better than push/pull of the E60 OEM.
Please let me know.

Fred's kit is pretty cool, I'm in the process to try and get it working with my steering wheel heating function with the help of nicke60gre

Fred we're attempting to pass the heat pins seperately through the coil spring and connect straight to the white heat adapter. The aim is not to disturb your current setup/functions.
