Ronsupreme, what kind of wheels are on your ride? They look a lot like style 42s but are monoblock.

Ha! Manuals are hard to come by and more expensive in New Zealand. Would love a manual conversion but for $6K there are other things I'd do to the car first. Was thinking of sending my EGS over to Dinan in the US to get the performance auto trans s/w. Sounds like it might be a good compromise and a helluva lot cheaper than a manual conversion.
