That's a cool box.

For those interested, my mini-review of the SS Tuning shift knob is up on my blog. I've been very happy with it and the carbon fiber is a welcome addition to the interior.

So...I wasn't expecting this to arrive so soon!
So as mentioned in the previous post I recently won a shift knob from SS Tuning. I had a few different options to choose from and opted for a gloss carbon fiber and leather shift knob, with a Tangerine Scream trim ring and yellow ST logo. It came with a shift boot as well as a couple of decals.
I threw the knob on of course but the boot is currently out as I already have an alcantara boot (with silver stitching) to match the rest of my interior. The shift knob is definitely a welcome addition though! I'd wanted one of these for a while and I'm very happy to now have one!

Earlier this year I made one super small change to the sedan that some people had questions about - a keyhole delete. I thought it was time that I shed some light on it.
I actually originally got this idea from the BMW E9x community as they use a very similar method to cover up their keyholes. I had the idea in the back of my mind for a little while but it wasn’t until I was pulling apart Ketchup (the donor ST) earlier this year that I decided to finally try it out and see if it’d work. The keyhole delete is actually just one of the blank pieces found on the other door handles — I removed one and happily found out that it did indeed fit with the driver’s door handle and kept everything functional (keyhole aside, obviously). This was one of those times where I was 99.9% sure it would work as hoped but still wanted to test it for confirmation. I then set one of the blanks aside for myself and had it colour-matched to the sedan, so that I’d have one additional little change for use at shows.
It's incredbly quick and easy to switch out the keyhole for the delete. Underneath the plastic plug on the edge of the door is a torx screw - undo it to release a locking mechanism holding the keyhole in place. Then simply switch it out for the delete, tighten the screw down again, and replace the plastic plug.
Of course however, the keyhole is there for a reason so make sure your battery is in good shape if you want to run without it! This is absolutely not the most practical modification out there, but it’s perfect if you’re looking for a quick and easy change to add that one extra detail to your car. I only use this for shows (and am very happy with the look) as for daily use I prefer having the actual keyhole in – just in case. With it being such a quick swap though, it barely adds any time to my show prep so it’s not an issue to keep switching the parts out.

This week the first real modification since the conversion happened; a Cobb Accessport!
Since the conversion the car had only been running a factory tune so I wasn't able to fully take advantage of the aftermarket parts it received from the ST - the intake, exhaust, and downpipe among others. Finally I was able to get an AP thanks to Rebel Devil Customs and wasted no time in loading the Stage 1 tune.
Unfortunately I can't go higher as I'm currently limited by the factory intercooler (the aftermarket unit was destroyed when the ST was hit) so that's next on my list as far as performance parts are concerned.
In the meantime though the Stage 1 map has made a very noticeable difference and I'm very happy to have extra gauges on the car now to monitor more parameters. Plus, it's just cool to have this thing sitting on the dash.
