Hi,
I ordered a M sport steering wheel (with Paddles) to install it on F20 LCI 118d (without paddles).
Is there an additional harness needed to make the paddles work?
Also, what is the coding procedure using E-Sys?
Thanks in advance..!

I don't know anything about coding procedure but when doing the same retrofit on my pre-lci f20, i remember the shop added some kind of cable going from passenger's side to steering wheel to make the paddles work. And also you probably need a back cover for paddles to fit in if you don't want to drill a hole in yours.

With some coding and the cable, yes, it is possible. Mine is left hand drive. By holes, i mean the space needed for the paddles to 'sit' in. You can see them in the attached picture of an m sport steering wheel's back cover. The hole in the red square.
