I typically only mess with the shutter speed, but I'll give AV and TV mode a try this weekend. Got a cheap tripod to help with long exposure shots, it actually functions well as a in car camera mount as well.

I have a copy of Photoshop CS6 on my computer leftover from school. I was supposed to delete it, but since I'm not using it to make any money, I'm sure no one cares, haha

Like I said before, I'll snap some pics this weekend and see how they come out. I'll probably push them your way to get some feedback too

Oh sure! Send over the RAW pics if you want. I will try and process them as well as I can

eBay clutch stop

Just installed the eBay clutch-stop from Nelson. It works wonders for a $10 mod! Driving in traffic jams has become fatigue-free. That dead zone between the firewall and engagement point is gone. I didn't adjust it at all. Fit it as it is.

I highly recommend Nelson Kwong as a seller. USPS screwed up the first package he sent me. So, he simply sent out another one for me! For free

On a drive @La Honda road:


Pic was taken by my gf with her Galaxy S3. Had to process the color out to eliminate some whitewash though.

Dieselgeek Sigma 6

Finally got the DG SS installed!

I have ended up trying every possible combination of the shifter setup in the past, and I have not been happier

To be objective, the Neuspeed SS was pretty good along with the 42DD bushings. However, it still had the problem of slop after only 20 min of driving! Especially the 1st and 2nd gear become frustratingly soggy after a drive. On the upside, it retains the OEM feeling of gliding into gears by the virtue of being heavy.

Nevertheless, the DG SS has not been called as one of the best mods to the Mk6 without reason! I have the bracket bushings installed as well. This is the crispest, sharpest shift action I have ever used in any car. Period! Even after hours of driving, I deliberately launch from first gear after every stop

Did you have just shifter bushings or the bracket bushings as well? I'm looking to get the euro shifter cause I don't care for a much shorter throw, just hoping to eliminate slop

Hey, I had the full setup. 42DD shifter bushings and the bracket bushings from Verdict. They do a pretty good job of eliminating slop. However, the 1st and 2nd gears will be hard to find once the innards start getting warmer.

Dieselgeek is not only about the short throw believe me. If you haven't already invested in anything yet, go for the dieselgeek. You won't regret it. I took a long time to accept that

I hear ya, just hard to justify almost 4x the price, haha. May just get the bushings first and see how that works first

In that case, start with the bracket bushings. They will come into use with the DG SS as well

Finally bit the bullet and got myself these. I have underestimated these all along! Even for the tornado red, they completely change the personality of the car from posterior



Before someone asks, these are the Depo tails. Got it for a good deal from OPD. Perfect fit. No condensation through heavy rains. Happy!

Very nice! Got a few more things I want to get before I go with the tails, but they are def on the list
