    After a long time my shifterpaddles were not really registrering every shift
    It turned out to be the metal "spring" plate that hold the shifter paddles that get a bit tired, metal fatigue it's called.
    The paddles do not come back so strong & tight anymore.
    If you let go of the paddles to suddenly they bounce back a little even.
    Giving you the double shift or no shift at all.

    Here is the fix, or upgrade..
    I put 2 little coilsprings in to push the paddles back.
    The coilsprings i got from an old RC model i had lying around, but any good hardware store probably has some too..
    Luckely they are yellow, so easy to see on the photos.

    I drilled one hole where the spring must come out.
    One smaller hole to secure the spring with a small screw.

    The resistance is a bit higher, even feels better than when i just bought it.
    Also releasing the paddles to sudden is no problem anymore.
    Even if the flaps of your G25 / G27 still work i could recommend this little mod.
    Feels much more real and sturdy.
