Agreed. I've been looking for one (non-black) and have given up on them. Shame so many were sold as autos.

Usually trans, pedal cluster, and ecu need to be swapped. (trans ecu is typ the 'master' for the whole car.) Im sure you could find a used trans in a junkyard. Not worth the hassle for a daily driver.

Ironically I was admiring one of those on my way home from work last night; don't see them often.

Nice! Also, your son sounds like a right badass. I'd love to meet him.
