BMW F20 LCI auto/returning column stalks retrofit

For me, the new mechanical column stalks (turn signals and windscreen wiper) are really annoying. The older F20s have stalks that returns to center automatically. Have successfully retrofitted newer type of column stalks from F15 on an F20 M140i. It looks similar to the mechanical versions, except of the auto windscreen wiper button and off course as they returns to 0-position when operating. It feels so premium and more modern now!

Yes, it is! It costed around 120 USD, for an F15 steering column switch with coil spring and an new button for steering wheel heating. I coded it with bimmercode.

Yes, off course. If you have steering wheel heating, you also ned to change the heat button from an 2AT/F15. Just send PM.

Bimmercode

I retrofitted my 2018 F30 with the old model stalks, but the far press indicator does not work. It stays on as long I am pushing it. The lane change works (3 blinks) and so does the wiper. Is there any coding required to keep the far press working?

One thing I noticed: when I select the not active option in Lin_variante_szl, the indicator still functions as long as I push/pull the stalk. It goes off when I release it. I tried with many options but the behavior is the same. The lane change blinks 3 times but after the threshold it only blinks as long as I hold the stalk in the position.
