E46 paddle shifter on 335i sports steering wheel?

Does anyone know if the stock E46 M3 paddle shifters will fit on the 335i sports steering wheel directly? Also if it is direct bolt on what wiring modification would I need to do to change to the + for upshift and - for downshift? I find the design of the 335i paddle shifter very annoying. I'm use to either driving manual or + for upshift and - for downshift design.

Can't speak directly to your question past noting you'll likely need to change the steering column wiring harness as well, but if you want "Pull left for downshift, pull right for upshift", you can use the procedure found here: http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showth...dle+left+right

thanks for the link. When I have time i'll take the car to the shop and have my mechanic to do it for me. He's pretty good with this kind of stuff and will do it for a good price.
