1. Nope...depress the brakes to move it out of Park and after that, you can move it freely from R > N > D > Sport or Steptronic Mode. This knob feels alot lighter than the stock one.

2. Paddles can be retrofitted. These are SSG paddles that were installed, specifically for my hand size, so it feels very comfortable for me. Being SSG, and not SMG paddles, either side upshifts and downshifts.

You might notice I also added a Z8 Start button, extra gauges in the center console, aluminum pedals, M3 dead pedal, steering wheel trim and aluminum ebrake. Lots of nice little touches, but very tasteful IMHO and still has that OEM look.
