The pictures don't show it real well, but the wood was in terrible shape--the shifter bezel especially. Had they been presentable, I would have kept them. My 5.9 isn't quite a show car. 99% of it looks like it's either been mauled by a tiger, **** on, or both. It's getting there, though.

Guys, I love the 5.9 and all, but we're not talking about a '71 HemiCuda or something here... Niners ARE rare, but who cares that he wrapped the wood grain on his Jeep? By that logic, the guys lifting their 5.9s should feel just as bad, because that's not keeping them completely original!

Put some air in those tires! I would think that belongs to a woman like that hahaha. My wife told me she filled up her tires at the gas station. When I checked them all 4 were at different pressures. She said she was in a hurry.

All you guys complaining about the Niner trim. You know, my TSi had that same dark faux wood before the Niner.

...with the exception of the shifter bezel, which looks better in black/agate anyway.

I agree I wouldn't trade any of the TSi trim

Edit: I would like to have a wood grain shifter...

I got to come home from work early, hoping to wrap up the rear main... Under my Jeep a cat is lurking, trying to stay out of the rain.
