Will do. It will be Tuesday once my numeric shifter arrives I believe my car has every leather option that was available, along with the design edition gloss back bits in the rear hatch and dash
It's a bigger job than I thought.
Seats out make it way easier.
There's so many hidden screws.... especially in the center console, take your time!

It's gonna look awesome!

Yeah, I’ve taken it out a few times. Took my gloss black one out this afternoon.

Had a bit of practice with changing shifters, had the gt3, and now the OEM SSK, which will be replaced with the numeric this week :)

I recommend the short throw option with the Numeric shifter. That is one reason for using their cables. Steel cables do not stretch and you will feel the synchros being used as you shift. You might want to order the cable covers as well to keep the NVH down.

Wherever the previous owner stored the car obviously had some vermin issues and the center console was where they stored all that corn.

Had I not changed the console I would have never found that.

Last Spring I installed new brake pads and rotors, front and rear on my '08 CS. As time passed (but not that many miles, unfortunately), the fronts began squealing like a pig whenever I was in Reverse (but never when I moved forward). Yesterday, I pulled the pads (left the rotors intact) and removed the 'anti-squeal' shims (which had been purchased new for the project. Liberally sprayed the backing of the pad with disk brake 'quiet' grease and re-installed minus the shims. Success! Quiet in both directions now.
