S55 steering wheel has paddles (well buttons on the back but they can be modified to paddles
Flat bottom isnít my taste for a W220 but you can find them on ebay

Hi,

You may find this useful :-

https://mbworld.org/forums/s-class-w...g-wheel-2.html

What I don't understand is why he didn't just fit all OE Parts and let them communicate via CAN Bus, as the Cars that have them from the factory do !!

This will of course require SDS to recode at least Shifter and TCU, unless ...................

Maybe the Paddle Shift Cars use a different p/n Shifter, in which case because Shifter is a theft relevant part it will be expensive to change that and create issues with needing programming to synch with other TRP's.

I don't know as I've never done a W220 Paddle conversion, my SLK R170 was a whole lot easier because it is hard wired direct to Shifter, which is not a theft relevant part.

Maybe @Kolleso can shed some light on this ????? He is the TCU Guru who has cracked TCU and knows all about re coding EGS 52 TCU, to do stuff SDS will not do, perhaps he has come across this

HTH,
