When is the last time you did the SMG reset? (above 40mph, put the car in neutral and hold both paddle shifters for approx 2-5 seconds)
At all speeds?
At high speed?
At low speed?
All downshifts experience the shudder?

Anything done to the car recently?

I think he means when he's approaching a red light or stop sign applying the breaks when his car downshifts it lightly shudders, mine does that usually from 3rd to 2nd

Just do the reset and see if it fixes it. It literally takes a few seconds to do so there's no reason not to try it.

It could be a warped flywheel, it could be numerous things.
