Its been awhile since I've last modded, but really, it never ends. Here are some quick pics of my early Christmas presents:

Hamann Evo Knob (Manual knob on my Steptronic)


Much better than my old OEM Matt-Chrome Knob


17 x 8.5" Lightweight SSR Competition Wheels (15lbs) For Autocross/Track
I still have my 18" Hamann PGIIs of course for the street, but man - what a difference in weight. Those Hamanns + Tires are HEAVY! I'm going to run some acceleration tests with my G-Tech Pro to see how much of a difference they make.


HIOP Limited Slip Differential Worm Gear
NOTE: I emailed Samir on this part, as it doesn't look new nor does it look exactly like the picture I saw. Neverthless, He VERY quickly responded and has forwarded my concerns to HIOP and offered a refund if I wasn't satisfied. Samir has a very high reputation, and I have had EXCELLENT service so far. I'm going to wait for further information since I'm not in a rush to install it.



What next? Hmmm, I AM considering the Technik Power Kits...

Cause nobody ever goes...

Yea, I'm thinking of going all the way with the Technik Stage 3 Power Kit. I've heard that the Steptronic tranny can't handle the power (over 300HP) from the ESS Supercharger. I'll check with Samir on this.

The shift knob works fine without the button. No modifications necessary. You still have to depress the brake to shift out of Park.
