Like I said, that's an oxymoron.

I did however stay in a Motel6 recently.

Gauges look great.

Are those switches on the side?

The CSD shifter. The buttons on the side are the tap shift moved to the shifter from the steering wheel.

FUN AS HELL to drive now. I never used them on the steering wheel because I'd lose them when I turned hard. So this is perfect.

As far as the tap shift goes anyway.

That is very cool. The little time that I drove the SST before it left for CA, all I used was Tap Shift. Way too much fun.

Glad you get to play with it. Kind of a manumatic...
