If anyone who´s already got a G25 buys one of those he is throwing away his money for no good. I don´t buy a wheel because it´s nice and quiet if I turn it. I don´t need to adjust my pedalpositions. The new shifter is a step backwards, as it is less functional. And I don´t need 6 buttons on my wheel. Don´t even know what I should assign to all those. Or basically, if you have a G25 keep it. I just don´t see any point of buying one of those.

Some good improvements over G25. Certainly looks like a better wheel, but nothing too fancy. Solid force feedback at the center would be very nice though.

Pedals are the same as in G25, but you can raise or move them. Good for Heel'n'Toeing, I had to mod my pedals the hard way to get positioning correct.

For what I need it´s useless. A G25 is perfect for me. And I can´t do Heel´n´Toeing, I´d break my foot again if I tried. silent

Yeah, get a G25. G27 is just not worth being I guess twice the price. And, don´t do heel´n´toeing. I broke my foot with it once, really! silent

G25 is great but thats what i said when i bought it : "why there is only 2 buttons on the wheel..."

They made correction now...

But i wont buy the G27 for the moment cos i got my G25 for some months.

It looks good anyway.

Just too expensive for what it is. And no Sequential Shift Sad
My MS Sidewinder FF has bad pedals and sometimes the steering is a bit off, but I'll do with it.
Very maybe a G25 later on, but no G27.

I don't think they will continue building G25s anymore as this G27 is so similar and probably about the same price range too. You could get good discount on G25, but better not to wait too long IMO.

Heel'n'Toeing is great fun once you get used to it. Only car that really needs doing it is LX6, but I still do it in every H-gated car partly because of habit and partly because of fun. I just should buy something to attach pedals more firmly as I tend to kick them away in braking sometimes Shocked
Out of curiosity: How and which part of your foot broke?

Don´t know exactly which part anymore. The only thing I remember is that I slipped of the pedals, which was followed by a loud knock from my foot and big AH! from me. That´s why I use auto clutch, so I can blip the throttle on the downshits without having to do heel´n´toeing. I´m so used to blip on the downs that I even do it in FWD cars, where it has no effect at all. silent

I give you a tip: Buy a G25 unless you like hospitals and spending too much money. Wink
