Congrats and Welcome to MU. It's a tough wait which gets worse the closer you get, but helps to have forums like this to pass the time.

Cheers Rocket! I'm jealous! One of these days I'll be doing the same thing - Waiting... No bashing here about the Auto transmission. To each his own. That, and you could probably upgrade that to the point that you're shifting faster than a stick, so it's all good. I'd recommend finding aftermarket paddles though - I thought the plastic ones that are stock feel way too cheap... Congrats though!!!

Absolutely. Right now I'm just waiting for it to actually progress through the production line. With the strike killing production this weekend, my estimated completion date got pushed back two days to the 19th. Then it's a matter of waiting for the next boat. I figure by mid July I'll finally have it.
