Not sure how many locals are viewing this thread, but if we can get enough interest, I'd be happy to kick start a semi regular Friday night meet at one of the local caffeine dispensaries...Congrats on your purchase! It took me quite a bit of time to find my own 6spd manual, but it was all worth it! I think your post says you’re from the SF Bay Area, maybe I’ll see you driving around sometime!
I distinctly remember the exact same sensation when I picked up the wife's smg some 4 years ago. I've had a bunch of high end cars and bikes and daily drove a v10 S8 at that time and I still was blown away by continuous power available north of 6K. Literally texted "holy **** this thing is a monster" to the previous owner that I grabbed the car from 10 minutes prior.My thoughts went something like this:
0k-3k RPM: "Hm, I think I could daily drive this car"
3k-5k RPM: "What's the big deal, where's the torque?"
5k-6k RPM: "Woah..."
6k-7k RPM: "WTF, it's actually pulling harder!"
7k-8k RPM: "This thing is a monster!"
8k+ RPM: "Ack, I better shift..."

That's a reasonable option, but I wanted something that was tried and tested as well as plug and play.I've tried all the LED stuff and will only stick with HID in the angel eyes. VERY bright...no LED kit can match. Some complain about the rings yellowing from the heat....mine never have. My kit has a resistor built in so maybe it helps?
