What is on the steering wheel of this 328i?

Hi everyone!

I am thinking about buying my first BMW - a used black 328i. Here is a link to the listing.

If you look at the pictures, you can see little pedals on the steering wheel. What are these? Is this part of the "Sports shift"?

Sorry for me inexperience. Any other remarks or thoughts on the car would be great. Thanks!

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I moved your thread over to the E90 forum as the car you're looking at is an E90 chassis code. Those are paddle shifters on the wheel, you have it right.

Other E90 members will be able to comment on that car in more detail I'm sure.

Good luck,
Tim

Nice clean car. The listing describes a manual transmission car but of course the pictures show an automatic tranny. Make sure you get a detailed service record and if possible have a 3rd party do an inspection. The ZSP (Sports Package) is very nice and gives you the paddles, sport seats and tighter and lower suspension. It also has the ZPP (Premium Package which includes power memory seats, BMW Assist, power folding outside mirrors, sunroof and other options). My only concern is the mileage thus the need for the repair history.

Warp drive. Hey, why not see the car? Owner'll fill in any blanks.

Your Google search criteria should include "Stepmatic Operation" today.
