Picked up my new 6MT beast!

..And all I can say is wow!

Jerez already dirty () but gee whiz all I can say is, how I have missed the mighty stick shift! So much fun rowing through the cogs.

Apologies for the shoddy iPhone pic, will get some better pics up when I get her a proper clean this weekend. Tint going in next week.

Still getting the hang of the clutch, my stop starts are very jerky at the moment.

WRT run in, have been keeping it upper 4.5k RPM but not really babying the throttle. I haven't taken it WOT but have definitely given it some beans.

My car is completely bone stock, not even tint, and you pretty much inspired me to black out my kidney grills (my car is black too). Might hop on Mod Bargains tonight...

Will get you some better shots to show you how good it looks on black. Tint going in next week. I also have aluminium OEM pedals which look great as well.

Beautiful car, just get yourself a foam gun and high quality micro fiber towels for that beauty. Foam gun is awsome and realy helps cut down on swirling.

Congrats Op....

Gotta love Jerez!

This may make some posters cringe, but I use a California Car Duster on my JB when it needs a little dusting down..Probably buys me another 3-4 days till I break down and wash again.
