Might be the wrong place for this question, but I have an 05 350 and the only option its doesn't have is buttons on the steering wheel.

Can i retrofit a steering wheel with buttons easily?

would love these paddles if i can

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hi there

I'll need your VIN to check, but it's all do-able ...

Can you post it or drop me a PM

Hi from Aberdeen Scotland. Bought my 04 350 in June this year. Never had an auto box before so was no sure if I would like it. Been getting used to it and after trying out the buttons on the steering wheel have decided not to bother with them too much. I prefer the override at the gear lever as I don't have to find the buttons when cornering. Of course that's my preference but may be worth a thought. Happy motoring. Roy.
