I don't know what parts are required but I don't think the had to change any wiring. It may need coding but I don't think so, providing the function buttons are the same.
Just to be specific, was the standard wheel without any options and m-sport had heating & paddles? I know swapping base wheel to m sport is easy if they both have the same options, but as i have m sport wheel without additional options, the question is are there everything needed inside the steering wheel itself to retrofit heating and paddles just with swapping the wheel and coding. For example in F-series retrofitting paddles needed only steering wheel swap and coding, but heating required extra parts because the button was on the steering wheel column and not in the wheel itself as the current generation.
