Paddle Shifters without Sport AT?

Is it possible to add paddle shifters to a US-market X1 not equipped with the M Sport package? Wish BMW NA offered US customers more choice...would like the paddle shifters and sport seats without the M Sport Package.

AFAICT from the ordering guide this is not possible.

By keeping all the wonderful sporty goodies in one option package (M sport steering wheel, sport seats, paddle shifters, etc) I think BMW USA is trying to entice more people to pay for the M Sport package, thereby increasing profits.

Otherwise I would have gotten the basic model and simply added Sport seats; sadly that's not possible here. So I got the M Sport package. I had no other choice, since the during my X1 test drive I discovered the standard seats are too small for me.

Understand that, but wondering if you can retrofit? I know people used to do that on E9x cars...
