Okay, may or may not help. So, we will see.
According the catalog, it is interesting that the steering switches are only available as an assembly with the steering wheel itself. I'm sure that may change should there ever be a quality issue with steering wheel switches functioning or in their finish. But, the paddles are available separately. Part number is 25549-6AV0A. This is first thing to figure out and it's done. Screenshot attached.
But, the next questions would prove more useful:
-Where's the trim to accommodate for paddle shifters? Could find that in the catalog.
-Where do this paddle shifters hook up? Is it the clockspring or are the connectors on the dash harness? I think so. But, as you can see from the second screenshot, can't really determine much. That's the image used for all applicable dash harnesses.
My thoughts is this may very well be a pipe-dream killed off early. To put paddle shifters on will take quite a bit of very expensive trial and error.
From using past experience, to get the trim around the paddle shifters, if a separate part designation isn't shown in the catalog, that means you have to get a steering wheel as it comes with it.
For the connectors, if they are a part of the clock spring, which clock spring would be able to work? There's 4 options without a VIN. A VIN would help narrow it down, but, still no guarantee.
Then, if all was hooked up, will it work? The older cars being setup from the factory to allow for paddle shifters was a sweet and easy upgrade. This one is definitely more involved.
Forgive me if I ramble and don't make much sense. It's early, I'm in a rush, and typing as I think progressively.
