Paddle Shifters Do Not work ?

I have a BMW F25 2011, was orginally bought with a standard steering wheel.

When I visited a friend In london I managed to buy some extras from my car and risked to buy another steering wheel with paddle shifters which was the only reason why I bought the steering wheel.

Lets get to the point...
They dont work, i guess the people in my country are just too lazy to do it (kosovo), not sure if they didnt code it right or whatever. However, everything else work such as the cruise control, sound just not the paddles.

iF someone has had this problem and solved it PLEASE GET BACK TO ME.

Just to get the simple stuff out of the way... Are you moving the shifter to the correct position to activate the paddles?
