    Car is awesome! Got it with 6 miles, already have 135 . I've never driven a stick before and I got the hang of it pretty quickly. Only concern is there is quite a bit of roll back compared to other cars. Otherwise everything is awesome! Pretty excited.
    You should have hill hold assist which does not let the car roll back until you engage. Congrats on the new car dude!

    And I'm sure it's mentioned elsewhere, but the seating position is fantastic - so just pleased, and surprised with how comfortable it is. I have the short shifter, but I can see installing the bushings?, the shifter is a tad mushy, and have heard good things about installing those. Do dealers install those, or do most people go to a shop for that? I can look it up, but looking for a good shop near Irvine, CA.
    I think most people install them themselves, as it's not that difficult. I'd say any shop would install them too, as well as the dealer, for a price.

    Had the Stage 2 done at Cobb yesterday - Pro Tune, AP, Downpipe, Heat shield, shifter bushings, and intake/airbox.
    Very happy - and the sound is great.
    Thanks to everyone on here for their advice and tips.

    Just read through this thread and it's funny to see how you went from saying that you want to stay stock to a stage two. Congrats on the car!

    I know - it's pretty funny. After reading through everything and asking some questions, it seemed alot easier than I had thought.
    The shifter bushings made a big difference, really like the shifter feel now - much better.

    Thanks ~

    Thanks -
    I went to Cobb SoCal in Fountain Valley.
    Nice place and very cool to deal with. I dealt with Ronnie.
