I believe to activate the paddles you will need to have the SAM updated, not positive for the European version.

It can be done, but the dealership will need a Transaction Authorization Number (TAN) to activate the paddles. I tried to get it done on my Pure, and let the dealership know ahead of time since I was going to be there for the heat blanket recall. My car was at the dealership for roughly 6 hrs, and the activation was never started. You may have better luck with your local dealership, if they'll even touch smarts anymore. An alternative solution is finding someone with a clone STAR system who can possibly generate a TAN for you.
