F21 Paddle Shift Retrofit and Coding

There are 2 possible situations – you may already have the required wiring so you won`t need to add an extra pin to the steering column and FEM BODY module and just code the 2TB option in order to activate the paddle shifters function, or you might have to do both.

The best way to do it would be to code the feature first and check if it works. If not, move on to the wiring part. As soon as it`s done, the paddles will work because you already coded it, ne need to recode anything.

  • Coding:

For this mod we will need to modify the vehicle order (VO) in order to remove the 205 option (Automatic Transmission) and add the 2TB option (Sport Automatic Transmission).

Refer to this document on how to modify this exact option, the only thing that is different is the target chassis which for a BMW F21 car is F020.

  • Wiring diagrams

Ok so if you are one of the unlucky people that also need the wiring part, we made things very simple for you. If you are not a DIY kind of guy then take these diagrams to someone who knows what he`s doing and he`ll get it all sorted out easily.
