I went to drop off OEM paddle shifter parts for my yet-to-arrive 2.5L Turbo. The Service Manager came out and said he didn't think that adding paddle shifters to the 2.5L Turbo was possible. He states that the pcm/ecm/ecu may need to be reprogrammed and he would need to check with Mazda to see if it's even possible. I assumed it was plug and play via this video: Adding Paddle Shifters to a 4th-Generation Mazda3 / CX-30

Does anyone have any experience adding oem paddle shifters to your CX-30 through your dealer?

I have a 2021 base model, Mexico build, 2.5L non-turbo with 6 speed auto transmission. As is the base model did not had paddle shifters, but retrofitted this one:


The kit has Mazda original parts and was completely plug and play. Installed by myself and works from the very first moment, no programming nor dealer involvement.
It works as intended: changes gears up and down in M mode and also enables MD mode if pushed in D. Pressing and maintaining + paddle cancels MD mode.

My car is a non turbo, but not see why should be different for turbo models

He was afraid his tech would screw it up...
C'mon, its a simple procedure I could do myself but I don't want it to alter the warranty. The service manager is suppose to do some digging and get back to me but I haven't heard anything yet. It's going to be pretty annoying if they can't come through on this. I also contacted Mazda Corp via email so we'll see what they say as well.
