Welcome to the modness! I think you'll love it here, lots of info, lots of ideas.take a look around, read some interesting threads, plan your next mod (there will be more).
One caution: There are sort of strict rules pertaining to new members buying and selling on the forum. Please read the rules so you don't get crosswise with admin by making this into a "want to buy" post.

Haha, I feel so welcome. I broke a forum rule and a terminology rule in a single post! Was merely describing what I bought, and my goals for it...was not aiming to break any rules.

And I'll call it whatever you all would like, but for the record, the part description/fitment from GM, for the wheel that I ordered is "CTS-V, with suede, manual trans." Part number 22982695, if you feel so inclined to verify GM's description. Was super easy install. Happy that original wheel popped right off. No puller needed. Shift knob is in my mailbox today, hopefully that goes similarly smooth.

Its hit or miss with people getting their shifter off. There are many post where people say just give it one big tug upwards, others have taken the whole assembly out, put it in a vice, and then tapped the shifter off. I will be installing my short throw shifter soon and will have to cross this road. Hoping for an easy going experience. Best of luck!

Shifter knob removal on mine was an absolute beast. After trying all the usual ways, I resorted to a tie rod tool (tuning fork looking thing) and a short bit of two-by-four vertically on the floor as a fulcrum and a two pound hammer(!)
Yanked for all I had. Leather (pleather? Faux animal hide?) knob seems to have won for the night. I'll have to do some reading. What's actually holding it fast? A clip of some description?

EDIT: 20 minutes and most of a beer later, hit myself in left side of my face hard enough to have a headache and no BS feels like I made side of my face fat... But it's off!

Thanks! A membership I could have done without, haha.

Twas a fairly tight 9% double IPA pint. Still working on a sponsorship deal, so I can't call the brewery out, just yet.

Kicker to the whole deal: new knob came out of the box in two pieces.

There is a reason most wear a helmet while removing the shifter knob.
