    I have the chance to buy a good as new G27 for what i could sell my G25 for, is it worth it? I know if i wanted to go thru the hassle i could buy it and sell it for double what it would cost me but not bothered about that.
    Couple more buttons, not an issue, any other positives, i remember reading a while ago of people going from G25 to G27 and wishing they hadnt, is it a genuine upgrade, sideways step or just not worth the hassle?

    Honestly, I got a G27 but wish I'd hunted a bit more and found a G25. The sequential shifter of the G25 is missing from the G27

    I wouldn't buy a G27, with G25 you can simulate cars with H or sequential stick and with paddles

    The shifter isnt an issue either from what i read previously, switch a couple of wires and i can use the g25 shifter with the g27.

    What about performance benefits of the wheel and pedals? ignoring the shifter.
    I think i will and if i dont like it just go back to the G25

    Shortcut to reliability I think, the G25s shifters broke down comparatively often. The rubber band trick works well though, tried it with Dirt rally.

    The only issue with a G25 gear it was the switch for drive back (retro?) . I had to do an home trick with it
