Stick with black. Lets the rest of the bling stand out. It might be a little too much silver.

holy **** so all this time you were on a dinky *** 1.6 5speed? At YOUR power level?

I am amazed that the transmission held up that long. You should sell it on ebay as a magic gearbox

Congrats! Installing a 6spd or another 5? I'm waiting for mine to grenade at some point too... and I'm beating the hell outta the stock 1.6 and 5spd at 225rwhp, and that's 73 less that your baller machine. Quite suprised it lasted as long as it did for ya! I sometimes have problems catching the 2-3 shift on track... start of synchro failure?
