    Hey guys,

    I think this is the best day of my life, and also my luckiest.

    Don't know if some of you will remember, but I made a post a while back about my turbo making some weird supercharger noise and I took the car to the dealer stating this and also that I had a couple of problems when I shifted from 1st to 2nd.

    Well turns out they wanted to take the transmission out and see what it was looking like. They quoted me 2000$ for the job, which I did not had to pay because either it was going on the warranty or the dealer where I bought the car said they would be paying for the repairs.

    Well, I gave them my car on September 10th and it was still on TSP Stage 1 (I'm an idiot but I did not flash the car back to stock) but when I arrived at the dealership I just changed the car to MAP 1 and took the KTuner chip with me lol. Today I went there to take my car back because the job was done.

    Turns out they replaced the clutch, the flywheel, the pressure plate, the synchros and also gear 2..... AND IT WAS ALL FREE!

    I guess this is the best dealership ever, they were not supposed to replace the clutch and flywheel but they said it was damaged so hey, Ill take it then.

    PS: No I did not damaged the clutch and the flywheel by myself even though I was on TSP stage 1. I bought the car at 22k km and I am guessing the previous owner had no fucking idea what he was doing.

    Sorry for the long post, I'm just so happy, the clutch feels sooooooo much better.

    Oh yeah hahaha, I said whatever when I arrived at the dealership it was too late anyway I did not have my laptop with me. I guess they didn't care lol, they even test drived the car 2-3 times, but it was on MAP 1 so not very noticeable

    "The power in these Si's is so underrated!"

    I still swear the used 2017 Si I test drove at the dealership was tuned because that thing moved like stink compared to the 2018 I bought new. The dealership acted like they didn't know anything about it.

    Way to sell new ones when you let people test drive your used, tuned model while they wait for new ones to come in.

    They probably didn't give you shit for being tuned because the car was used.

    This is why I advice anybody I can to never buy a manual used. I made that mistake once, never again.
