2008 e92 steering wheel buttons

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me if the steering wheel buttons on a 2008 e92 are supposed to be illuminated?

I don't believe so.

You know, after driving my car for 3 years, you would think I could make a definitive statement about it, wouldn't you?

I've been driving mine for a while and didn't realize that it wasn't illuminated until I drove a loaner and saw that the newer model buttons lit up. thought maybe mine were broke or something.

Strange...all the buttons work but they don't light up. Not sure what could be the problem.

So finally got the light issue fixed. Some "module" needed to be replaced so all working fine now. I didn't realize all the little lights that weren't lighting up...like the window switches, ambient lights in the inside of the door, steering wheel lights etc.. All lit up once this module was replaced. not sure what exactly it was called.
