    hahaha wow I hope it never snows in LA or us non AWDers are not gonna be happy campers. I should get the STi I've been dreaming of hehehe

    Good news:

    MGW is back and my order is cancelled. I can go pick up the shifter now with peace of mind that I won't spend on two shifters. :) but I can't pick up today gonna be busy :mad:

    AWD or 4WD is nice but is not needed, I daily drive an E46 325i BMW without even having snow tires and do fine. People with AWD think they are invincible, I see a Legacy smack off a guard rail after flying be me tearing one of the wheels clean off. LOL

    Thats great you got the shifter!:nice:

    Hey Derek didn't know you were on here, I am an oldie but don't post alot.

    I actually drove (2) of my 5.0 LX's all year round and never had a problem either. One had studded Cooper snow tires and I could blast thru 1ft of snow with no issues LOL.

    awesome day. called mgw and cancelled my order. then told my seller I couldn't make it today and that I would get it tomorrow. He offered to bring it to me where I work and we did the deal. Awesome! Everything still in its package looking brand new! Can't wait to get it on... :banana:

    another question on this... since i want to get that shifter in today if I can.

    I don't have the lower shift boot that comes oem. will MGW's dust boot suffice or do I absolutely need the oem one as well?

    lol sometimes wish I had the phone # of one of you geniuses in here for when I'm stuck. plus I'm hating the previous owner for mutilating the car and removing the inner boot... I should go kick him in the nuts. I know where he lives.
