new mods for the coupe

Recently installed the Whalen Shift Machine.. It goes good with the MOMO steering wheel plus its much shorter than the stock shifter. Watch the for sale section for a lighted m3 shift knob Also, a friend of mine sold me a Dinan Front Strut bar for $250 CND hehe Now I just need to test them out at the autocross

I just got my Whalen Shift Knob put in 2 weeks ago after my tranny swap was done. Great knob! I love how it's heavy and it feels great when changing gears due to the heavy weight of it. I have the brushed version tho. Not the polished like yours.

Oh hell yea! but it's a nice hot tho. I HATE it if my car is parked in the sun and I come back to the car and the shifter is WAAAAY to hot to touch. I have to have an extra cloth in my car to use over it or else I will burn my hand.

what is the weight of the new knob?
I gutted my original illuminated shift knob and added weights inside it... did the trick, but need a shorter shift stalk...

looks good though. good work.
