Years and years ago, let's see, 30 years ago actually. Took my grandfathers old car to get new tires put on it (we'd had to take it away from him - he'd pull up to a red light and wait a few seconds, then get impatient and just roar through without looking - was going to kill people). Found that some tool bag who had done work on the car for him and cross threaded and over-torqued a lug bolt like that. Just disappointing. Some kind of red Pontiac two door (he'd always been a Pontiac man except for when he got himself a Karmen Ghia to play with).

And as an aside, I like lug nuts and studs, cause you can hang the wheel on the hub, then put them all on. I'm lazy like that.

Added to AeroF16's post delivery inspection list ...

- inspect, loosen and retorque the lug nuts. [wrenchin]
Haha probably! But this time it’ll be in my garage, with the proper tools to get any job done!

Jeep will scoot over, BMW next to the Jeep, Hellcat in its own bay away from the kids haha. The third bay is like 2.5 cars deep, that’s where all the tools hide!

Well she made it safe and sound. Pretty dirty but it’s only 20 degrees right now, so I’m going to wait until after lunch to go wash it.

After that, I’m gonna throw it up on the Quickjack and go through it, make sure it didn’t get tagged or something on the way here.

Is that the skip shift thing?

I drove it around town a bit today and it never once forced me to do a 1-4 shift. Previous owner said he didn’t do the skip shift delete or anything.

I’m gonna sell this JLT intake as well. Too loud for my liking. He threw the factory intake in the trunk, so I’m going to put that back on.

Only other thing I want to do is installed the Barton when it warms up and search around for some Brass Monkey wheels.

CDV = "Clutch Delay Valve"

I pulled mine out, couldn't hardly notice a difference???

For casual driving, I've learned to do a 1st to 3rd shift, gets rid of the problem of getting forced into 4th.

Skip Shift and CDV removal are two different things but both enhance the M6. At low speed the 1-4 shift is enabled and it's annoying. If your getting on it in the least bit, it's not noticeable. I put put around until my oil is up to temp, so for 20.00 it was a no-brainer for me. Actually got it from a guy for 10.. inc. shipping. The CDV removal provided consistency to the clutch engagement for lack of a better term. I believe it was OEM to help with driveline shock for folks who don't know how to drive a standard.
Congrats on the car, it looks great. Love the hood! Brass Monkeys would be nice for sure, I always liked them.

Definitely complete opposite of my experience. I noticed it right away...even before I knew it could be done, when I was driving it for the first couple of weeks, I was beside myself trying to figure out why the engagement point kept changing. I was driving manuals daily since I was 15 and this had my questioning my ability.

Oddly, I don't think that I've experienced the skip shift in mine. Does the car put any message on the screen when it locks you out? I also tend to drive gingerly until at least the coolant is up to temp...no flatout until the oil is up to temp.
