Wow you have really planned it out! I feel embarrassed for just shooting in the dark haha.

I just got mine a few weeks back. Have the suspension, short throw shifter, shift boot, and shifter knob on order.

Looking forward to following your build:)

How do you feel about investing so much in a 2015 that might not have a great resale?

Don't think I'm trashing it. I ask because it's exactly what I'm doing. I have a red 2015 and have thrown a few grand in it, and have a few more to put in.

Installed the Status Racing (PRP) Transmission Tunnel Mats. Very high quality product. They fit perfectly, very thick, and contain a heat shield backing.

Installed the Twist Dynamics Cold Air Intake today. Pretty easy install except for the Herculean effort needed to get the mounting holes lined up.

@milani liked your mod especially the lighting. Would like to do the same. What did you buy and from who?
The light strips are Pilot Automotive CZ3143W and CZ3143R (the last letter is the color). I bought them at pep boys. I built the wiring harness by looking at the OEM kit instructions. The description says "peel and stick" but there is no tape to peel. I had to use some mounting tape to mount them, however it's not doing a very good job. The lights come with small mounting clips which I am probably going to use soon.

The SPDT switch for the dash came from Mouser and it's part number 999-K1ABFAAAAA
