: paddles for 535xi

does anyone know whether the 535xi will have paddle shifters in the near future? I am ready to purchase a 2008 - but will wait or go to Europe to buy one with the shifters.
What do you think.....?

I was told the paddle shifters would not be available on the 535xi. I was going to wait also.

That's a good question, but I heard otherwise. Let me double check to find out. I'll have an answer for you tomorrow.

If you look closely at the 5 series brochure (about the sixth page or so) it says the following: A new Sport Automatic, with shift paddles on the steering wheel, is available as an option in the 535i and 550i. It requires Sport Package; and is available as of June 2007 production.
