Perhaps, I would be easier to drive in India to have the installation together.
Jokes apart, I looked at the paddles pics, and I have a qustion: I noted that only 1 paddle has got an electrical wire for the connect; the other one seems to be without wires.
How did you install the paddles?
Thank you, give BMW a miss & look for a good tuner or garage that specializes in BMW or high end cars in general. My paddles were installed at a friends garage that works on super-cars, its really a very simple install.

I was a bit unsure when I received the kit too, the site didn't have pics of the product when I ordered. I assumed, I was the first one to order that part from them.

The downshift (left) paddle uses the stock plug where as the up-shift (right) paddle uses an extra wire/plug to work. I'm not sure about the technical reasoning but once everything plugs in, it all works perfectly. They are so much nicer to use, softer & quicker than the old shifters.
