Yeah. I suppose that's true. I pretty much have it figured out, at which point the only "research" necessary would be price and location. Price should be $40K or less, and location... meh. Doesn't matter.

2015+ Jaguar F-Type S Coupe 6MT, anything but black, preferably with either beige or saddle-brown leather seats. That would be 380 HP out of a supercharged 3.0L V6, with an active suspension, an active exhaust, and limited slip. Kind of partial to this orange here.



Now if I could just figure out how to get my girls through college *AND* get this car.

Going forward, plans get somewhat simple:

2018 - New front Conti's
2018 - EcuTek dyno tune
2018 - Two nearly invisible PDR issues that bug the **** out of me
2018 - New front snows

2019 - All new brakes; 2-piece rotors
2019 - Front CO's that have been gathering dust

2020 - Headlight customization
2020 - Poly Engine mounts (I figure by this time 4DRZ will finally give in and get a set and I will have an actual review of these on a sedan)

2021 - Save and research for Next Car

2022 - Jaguar
Slight modification to the list for you.

Oh, I can wait. Two years will slip by in no time. And unless you get overcome with a next-car moment, I figure you'll have these before me.

It's a perfect plan.

I'm onto your plan Rochester.

My plan:

2027: consider motor mounts

2033: research motor mounts

2035: realize I am the only person left on earth without a hybrid or EV and finally trade the G for something else

(Yeah right! Knowing me, I'll probably have these installed next year)

Snowtires notwithstanding, I haven't driven my car in two weeks. God damn winter.

Yesterday I spent about an hour reasearching shift *****, thinking I might like something new. But I've still not found anything more appealing to me than my teardrop shaped titanium ****. (sigh)

There are not too many good options for our cars in my opinion. Why do you want to change and what has made your short list so far?

Because it's relatively cheap to do, requires zero effort now that I'm already there, and I think it could be fun to have options to change things up now and then.

However, I have none on my short list. I did find this website of interesting stuff yesterday.

https://www.sportshifters.com/service/product-options/

And now we're having this discussion in both our progress threads, LOL.

Just brainstorming... imagine this piston **** wrapped in the same perforated leather I'm using for the boot, which is from Redline Goods. Maybe half less height on the underside shaft, though.

I had a piston shifter from wc lathe works wrapped in leather. The leather moved since it was just wrapped around and stitched tight, I hated it.

I've also been thinking about a new **** but there don't seem to be many options. Come up with something cool so I can copy it

Rochester, are you thinking of just a shift **** and the lower shaft or are you considering their trim plate too? I don't know that the trim plate would fit all that well.

I think your interior would look good with one of the round shift ***** since most of the shapes in our interior have soft rounded edges. Tough to say though as that is personal preference for everyone.

Just the ****. And just thinking out loud. Not an actual project.

That piston **** looks really nice. I'm very partial to leather wrapped metal ***** especially since the **** can me made out of stainless steel instead of aluminum or titanium, which gives the **** a nice weighted feeling. I'm actually running a leather wrapped Rob **** RK6A-L from UUC Motorwerks in my Porsche and love it.

Why has no one mentioned the new Jag they are having celebrities drive on The Grand Tour? I figured Rochester would be all about it.
Thinking about it now, I would love to see him cringe when they drive it through the gravel.

Haha! That is a great point. I never even thought about Rochester's reaction to that. It's probably a touchy subject for him...

Didn't you notice that's the new 2.0T? Pretty car, sure, but don't care.

That powertrain doesn't belong in that car, IMO.
