    My OCD prefers a manual, gives me something to do while driving. Plus it's cheaper to fix.

    Being able to work 3 pedals at the same time with 2 feet FTMFW!

    Gotta learn how to keep your foot on the brake, let the clutch out to the catch point, give it the gas, and then slide your foot off the brake.

    Hopefully that will never happen. When my daughter learns to drive I'm buying her a manual. I don't ever want her to be in a situation where she can't drive because she can't drive a manual.
