Merry Christmas!

My wife was telling me "I don't know what to get you this year!" I'm like "Are you kidding me? I have the 1er on order, I'm a happy guy"

Merry Christmas Everyone! I was so close to picking up a JB3 for myself for xmas. I had by pointer on the checkout button. It was either that or CSL reps. I coudn't decide which one I wanted more, so I didn't do anything.

Rachel, please keep us posted. I'm on the fence with the SSK myself. Are you installing it yourself?

Also, do you have the instructions on PDF? I'd like to take a look at them before deciding whether or not to go with it.

Sure thing. A friend of mine is going to let me use his lift, so hopefully next weekend the install will take place. I'm going to attempt it on my own, but I'll probably have back-up just in case! Sorry, I only have the print-out directions, no PDF. When I'm done however if you'd like me to mail them to you I can. I'm pretty excited!

Glad to hear folks had a great Christmas!

I did as well, albeit with no snow here in Columbus Ohio. :-/

I did manage to successfully complete all my Christmas shopping in Munich last week, and the German gifts went over very well with the family :-)

Look forward to seeing all of you at a gtg in the new year!

All right... shifter is in. Put the car up on jackstands. The install isn't so much the stupid part, but all the work you have to do to actually access the shifter. Definitely feels more solid, however, had this not been a gift, I can't imagine that I would have spent the money on it.

I've been through the SSK install, as well (full exhuast, JB3, SSTT, and DPs, too). If anybody needs or would like help, feel free to ask. I can even make my garage and jack available if you're willing to make the road trip to Westfield, MA. Its not really a hard install but it does fall into the PITA category and is best to combine with a cat-back exhaust install since the midpipes have to come out.
