I never have had to yet...but I don't really use the paddles all that much. 80% of the time I use the gear shifter. It is where I rest my right hand lol. My wife always gets pissed when I am doing 160 mph+ with one hand...she asks why I don't just use the paddle shifters haha. Just habit I guess :)

Yep! It losses the spring action which makes it super sensitive and you find shifting going through two gears by barely touching it!
Kinda like the hair trigger on my Glock 9mm.

My "+" had to be replaced last month. The spring went dead, couldn't tell if it had upshifted. Covered under warranty, took a day to get the part. I got a mini cooper manual for a loaner, that was a lot of fun for a day.

My beast is a 2006 with 17,000 miles. Paddle shifters still works great, no issues (knock on wood).

I use my paddle shifters about 90% of the time.

I was trained both hands on the steering wheel at all times except when gear shifting. Or except when I am rubbing my girlfriends legs : )

Aftermarket Paddle Shifters?

I'm kind of rehashing an old thread but does anyone make aftermarket paddle shifters for the M6?

mine work great....41k miles on the clock. Maybe you guys are getting overly excited when shifting with the flappers and putting too much stress on them....lol
