Default paddle shifters? what option list??

Hello was shopping for a new LX and seen some models have paddle shifters; the dealership which does not have that model in stock is clueless about them. any help? is this a deal installed option?

I believe this is a dealer installed option or dealer option for them to choose when ordering the LX. I have a 14' and it doesn't have any paddle shifters, but it would be nice to have

Everything points to this being offered only outside the US... Notice the speedometer units - all are km/hr. Video is from Canada.

I also did a random sampling of non-US Lexus sites, and lo and behold, wherever the LX is, there are paddles.

This is a factory thing - no way it could be port-installed, never mind dealer-installed.
