Paddle shifters removal.

Does any one know if removing the paddle shifters from an '08 328 is a big deal. They came with the car and we really don't use them. They're sort f right where I'd like to grab the wheel spoke while driving.

No just remove them. You should have them coded off but it won't give an error or anything if they aren't plugged in

Yes turned off so the car knows they are not installed.

You can read up in the coding section or on bmwcoding.com

Ya don't worry about coding you won't get any errors.

Just disconnect the battery pop out the airbag and then you can remove the 2 screw that hold in paddles , unplug and remove and put the airbag back.

FYI, don't close your trunk after you disconnect the battery unless you can open your trunk with the metal key, not all cars have a manual release.
