The dog is actually my girlfriend's...he was just tired out from a 20 minute walk...I think he was just enjoying the day...as were we. 68 degrees in November is unheard of in Chicago. Just not looking forward to winter with the snow and all that nasty salt. I think I am just gonna park it in my garage and borrow my dad's car for 3 to 4 months.
Finished having the TWM Performance short shifter installed on Saturday. All I can say is WOW!!!! What a F*cking difference. If you have a 5 speed tC and are looking for the 2nd best bang for the buck upgrade/Mod...(the first being the suspension upgrade...strut bar/rear sway bar/springs/shocks)...then you need to install the short shifter. The gear shifting is now seemless and no more terrible lags between shifts. I also purchased their new gunmetal weighted shift knob. Will take pictures later today or tomorrow and post them. I decided to have Dude's Performance Shop install it for me...their guy has installed hundreds of short shifter kits and it only took him about 30 minutes.
