Looking good!

Compared to the regular auto lever, how does the performance one feel overall?

Ah.. feels much more pleasant and comfortable in the hand. The stock lever felt a little rough and cheap to me.

ever thought about a nice pair of gloves? I buy a new pair every year at an annual car show.
It saves my steering wheel and shifter (6MT) from any kind of nicks, scratches,and wear especially on the M wheel threading (happened on my E46 M3, completely sucked.)

first off there not fire proof racing gloves, there basic gloves with a suede wrapped gripping area much like mechanics gloves; not to confused with what the kid down street wears in his riced out civic.

But hey each their own, you'll replace it, I won't need to.
