Put in a numeric racing shifter. Just driving in the parking garage it’s so much nicer than stock. Shorter throws and real precise.

There is a holiday sale on them directly from numeric. $629 if I recall. Worth it as the SSK is 429 plus shipping and function first metal cup inserts are another $200. Had both the SSK and cup inserts, this is better to me.

Don't you love those mechanics with a monkey wrench ? Personally I tend to worry .....a lot .... every time after a visit from a shop. Inevitably they fixed something but broke something else, that is if you are lucky. Otherwise they didn't fix anything but broke something else. :>(

I installed clear side markers today. It gives the car a much updated look.

A big improvement over the amber side marker.

Front extended dash leather with center speaker in leather, red seat belts and a numeric facing shifter. Further had my mechanic swap fluids on tranny, diffs and an oil change. Not pictured I put in full LED package interior and exterior, mounted my dash cam and debadged it.

Yeah, I missed Numeric's Rennlist group buy last month (need to stop avoiding the "new" marketplace forum...) but their website's holiday sale is pretty good so I ordered the shifter and cables package for $1029. Should arrive in a few days and I can't wait to get it all installed, I've been wanting to do it forever.

To complete the transformation, I'm topping it all off with a Raceseng heavy shift ****.

Nice. If doing yourself itĺs pretty straight forward for the shifter. My only addition would be to put the metal retaining clips in their place when you reseat the shifter cables.

Thanks for the tip. Between that and the other big Numeric shifter thread that's been floated here recently, I think I'll be able to handle the shifter/**** install. The cables definitely seem to be a job for the indy, though.

Hit the 29,000 mile mark. Since buying the car in May 2016, Ive put on about 15,000 miles. And loving every minute of it.

Washed my car after 2 months of bad weather and driving 5-6 days a week. Looking forward to it be clean for a good day or two.

Great looking car. That wing looks slick. Not obtrusive like many. Details & additional pics.

After a month of work, travel and hosting visitors, it was nice to just tool around the Metroplex, running errands.

Some may say obtrusive. It is a GT3RS carbon wing and rear deck with dual snorkels for X51 airbox. PO had installed and one reason I bought it. I likey wings. Some do not.
