I can't find an FX50S model in the colors and condition I want. Has anyone done the paddleshift mod? Are all 2nd gen 50s prewired for paddles?

Not gonna happen.

The entire harness is different. Unless you can figure out the CAN-BUS system and replace every sensor, gauge cluster, and module in the car, it's not happening.

Expand your search nationally - it's not expensive to transport a vehicle.

Thanks for the info. That seems odd given the ability to do the conversion on many Ms. I would have guessed a lot of shared technology but maybe the platform isn't the same. I am in Canada so S options are few and far between. With our peso like Canadian dollar I would get murdered on exchange buying from the US.

I'll let the M guys chime in, but even my '08 Cube was a wiring nightmare.

You'd be surprised how LITTLE is shared across platforms by Nissan... it seems counterintuitive, for sure.
