156 Selespeed Steering Wheel (push button -> paddle)

Hi everyone,
I want to replace my 156 selespeed steering wheel (push-button type) with shift-paddle type. Can this be done? Is it "plug-and-play" replacement?

Had the same idea, but my dealer in Bangkok wouldn't do it, fearing that the airbag deployment could be affected. Unfortunately I don't have a workshop CD of the paddle-shift model so I can't confirm if the steering wheel mount and/or airbag connection are different from the button-type.

I have the same desire, drove the 156 GTA with paddle shift and found it much easier. But my brother (Alfa mechanic) thinks (not sure) that the contact points are different, so you have to change part of the steering colum as well. Lets do some research !!
