  1. Love the new wheels... Makes me want 18s
  2. Thanks for the pics, it is the same color as the one I have. I was thinking it was going to be a dark grey one.
  3. Lurking...
  4. I bought a kit from them and have had to get both ballasts replaced. Have not had an issue since then. But if I had to do it again, I would go with ddmtuning. I don't think the price difference (which is significant) vs. quality/performance is worth it. My fogs have a ebay special kit and works just as well and has had no failures in the same amount of time.
  5. SO I finally got the new shift cable assembly. It was back-ordered. I got it in and all is tight and good now. Here are a few wrap up pictures of the old failed cable. Looks like the sleeve around the cable totally failed and was cracking off. The broken wires you see are part of the cable sleeve, not the cable itself. Once it broke, it allowed the cable to expand the sleeve causing the shift issues. Thanks to everyone for the assistance.
  6. Update, finally got the time to get under the car and check out the cables at the firewall... and well, there is an issue. See the pic. That is a hole in the cable cover and piece of the cable sticking out. When the shifter goes too far into the lower gears and feels like something moves, the cover of the cable inside is broken and expands in the rubber. So, new shift cable set on order now. I will update if this resolves it. It does not look like it will be too hard to change them. Are there any gotchas I need to know?
  7. Do you have a pic of how you have it configured? Here is mine. It is set on the "tilt stick towards back of car hole", for lack of a better name? I did not get the chance to tear this apart and look for moving parts, but I have not found any yet from what i can get to.
  8. Ok, Thanks. I will update again after I check it out this weekend.
  9. I will check out the brackets and stuff this weekend. I found this thread now that I think I have an area to focus on, this is similar to what is happening but I did not lose the gears all together. I found a couple other things like this and it seems that replacing the shift link cables resolved it. If all my brackets and cables LOOK fine, could it be the cable is just stretched or something?
  10. Are you talking about the bracket that holds the cables? Not the bushings, right? I will have to probably pull my intake pipe and take a look. I did not look that far back, just at the plate. This? Not a picture of mine, but just want to make sure I am looking at the right stuff.
  11. I tried to search but I don't really have a name for what is happening. I have an issue while shifting. I will try to explain it. When going into the gears at the bottom of the shift (2,4,R), If I do not go pretty slow, it feels like the shifter assembly moves back towards the back of the car. Meaning that it feels like all the gear positions for the stick are further towards the back. I can resolve this issue by putting it in first or third and pushing towards the front of the car (not very hard, but some pressure). I kind of feel a creaking in the stick and it moves forward. Then the gear positions are back where they are supposed to be. I ordered the Snabb delrin shift assembly bushings as I thought the assembly was moving, but I am pretty sure it is not after pulling up the boot and looking. I have the Snabb short shift plate and stainless bushing installed (has been a couple of years), but it is tight with no movement. I did notice when checking it that I can lift up on the arm/shift plate on the transmission side and it moves up and down. It does not feel normal to me, but I am not sure if this is normal or not. If I drive gently, giving plenty of time to ease it into the bottom gears, nothing changes. That is about all I have. I am pretty confused, any ideas would be great. I think the 2000 has the all brass forks from my reading, but I could be wrong. Not sure if this matters.
