I hear that you have the same problem as I had with this shifter. I would say it's function is not quite what you expect from an equipment that you are going to use in a high powered Porsche car.

I sent my shifter to a mechanic company who just laughed at what they saw, regarding to the price. They made bushings that they put in and wow what a different feeling. I also changed the reverse gear spring to a softer one, the feeling is perfect, when I'm shifting to revers. Still a small loose feeling of the 3d gear. But it's ok, not perfect but ok.

By the way mine was supposed to be the new one. So I don't now what was improved it was still a piece of crap.
