I'm interested on making my 6-speed manual C30 T5 much more fun to drive, though it has a replay nice gearbox. I was looking for short shift systems for the car but I haven't actually find anything where to buy or any brand that makes one for the car.
Does anyone has a short shifter in his C30, opinions, impressions.
Also, where can i get one!?

My car has been making noises in the front right strut whenever I go over bumps, so I took it to a mechanic today to get an idea of what is wrong. Unfortunately, once I got it up on the rack, it looked pretty bad. Although I used to baby my car, these days I just do not have the time to take care of it. It's starting to look like I will be paying for that now.
I got a quote from the mechanic (attached), who says I need to replace the shock mounts, front lower control arms, drive axles, ball joints, etc. on both sides. He seems like a trustworthy mechanic and they have good reviews, but just to be safe (had a really bad experience with my last mechanic), I wanted to run it by some of you on here who have a much better idea of what I should be looking at than me. I posted some pictures of what I say under the car as well. I really just want an opinion on whether or not everything recommended is necessary, and if they prices for parts/labor is realistic.
I just wanted to explain the annoying situation I've been experiencing with my 2013 C30 T5 R.
The car has only 32K Kilometers, only one change of brake pads done at the Volvo workshop. The Pads have already approx 6000 kms of daily driven and few hard driving.
Last week I was cruising in the freeway, going almost at 150kms and had to brake kind of hard because a police car was few meters away, though the braking felt very f..ing horrendous.
I felt the brake pads kind of clap the rotor, like if there was no full contact. I don't know if I'm making my self understand but yeah, just the braking was so bad, totatlly unsafe and definitely want to do an upgrade, NOT a Big brake system.
Do you know if the HAWK Sector 27 kit that comes with the slotted Rotors plus the pads work good?
I also read that Stoptech offer the same type of combo (Rotor+Pad) and it is not too expensive.
Has someone experienced the same problem, if so what do you did to fix it.
Let me know what you recommend!
