Thanks for the props guys.....

I forgot to mention...I stopped by my uncle's dealership and did some inventory look up for the SMG wheel....

There are about 30 avail in the socal area, of these at least 15 in the ontario warehouse....there is definately NOT a wait for these wheels....

The wheel is expensive though....body shops get them for $523 and internet pricing is a bit more...I do know that the dealers are paying $400 + freight for the part.

PowerDrift: I actually built a circuit and everything that you are describing on my first attempt at the paddleshift.... that is located here:

I found out that pressing both paddles doesn't do anything...BMW must have some sort of input protection, thus the logic gate stuff isn't necessary at all...bmw's stuff has good design....
