      For ****s and giggles.

      A lot of TCLers are grabbing these things lately, so it's time for a master thread. Check-in, and I'll add you to the list. Also, pictures - TCL loves a good whore thread.

      First on the list will be Arachnotron, the first SS buyer to post about it in TCL. He has to be first. Bonus points for it being his wife's car.

      1) Arachnotron (2015 Phantom Black 6MT)
      2) Rabbit5GTI/NATORabbit/PizzaCat! (2015 Alchemy Purple 6MT)
      3) IdontownaVW (2016 Some Like it Hot Red 6MT)
      4) Sold Over Sticker (2016 Some Like it Hot Red 6MT)
      5) maxor (2016 Some Like it Hot Red 6MT)
      6) silverxt (2015 Heron White AT)
      7) automobiliben (2015 Silver Ice 6MT)
      8) sicklyscott (2015 Some Like it Hot Red 6MT)
      9) Buckeye(OH) (2016 Regal Peacock Green 6MT)
      10) gunmike1 (2016 Heron White 6MT)
      11) utekineir (2015 Perfect Blue 6MT)
      12) Roberts_J (2016 Slipstream Blue 6MT)
      13) H. E. Pennypacker (2017 Slipstream Blue 6MT)
      14) TJSwoboda (2017 Heron White 6MT)
      15) g34343greg (2017 Slipstream Blue 6MT)
      16) CSRPenFab (2017 Silver Ice AT)
      17) AJB (2015 Regal Peacock Green 6MT)
      18) ArmenB (2017 Slipstream Blue 6MT)
      19) gooberbora (2017 Orange Blast 6MT)
      20) jalanrr (2016 Silver Ice 6MT)

      And...go!

      Do ancestors count?

      Touareg Hybrids are pretty nice, and the warm fuzzies I felt while driving the hybrid was actually the fingers of all of the German tax payers trying to reach into my wallet to get their money back. (Brendan@bwalkauto)

      You should be an honorary member based on your license plate, alone. I almost bought 'CRUZE SS' for me a few weeks ago.

      '16 some like it got owner here. Obligatory hushyshot



      As it's gotten colder here in NorCal, I've noticed two things.

      1: gearbox doesn't want to shift into second when cold. I skip shift 1-3 or start in second.

      2: when the exhaust is cold, I hear a slight sewing machine tap tap tap that matches engine rpm. Goes away when the cars d exhaust warms up.

      Anyone else notice that?

      Haven't noticed either of those, yet - but it is a crappy GM, amirite?

      Oh, duh. Read #2 wrong - yeah, that's completely normal.

      Added to registry.

      1) I've noticed with it dipping into the mid to low 30s in the morning my shifting just gets a little less assisted...once the fluid is a little warmer it's like butter.

      2) that's the usual GM valvetrain noise, gets louder with headers and a cam.
