    Subaru unfortunately doesn’t lead the pack much anymore. My local dealers Looked at me like I was crazy when I asked about which models on the floor where MT. The WRX is about it with the exception of a couple other base only models. And while they advertise their eye sight safety package as standard on all their vehicles, they don’t offer it all on any manual transmission car. Toyota is the only one offering that type of tech (safety sense) on a MT that I know of. It was actually one of the main reasons I didn’t get the wrx and got an 18’ Taco over the 17’.

    I was reading about Subaru doing away with all Manuals in the next year or two because that Eyesight Safety stuff only works on the automatics.

    that and they are heavily invested in the next wave of combustion-based efficiency: CVT's. that's a shame because I've always loved Subaru and always hated CVT's. and i have made my choices.. goodbye Subie.

    Things went downhill ever since they discontinued the Impreza coupe in 2001 and introduced an automatic Impreza WRX.

    VW offers adaptive cruise control/automatic braking/etc on the 6MT GTI and Golf R. Obviously Porsche does too on the 911/718, but it's like a $2.5k option on top of a very expensive car.

    Yes, but they discontinued the handbrake and replaced it with one of those push button brakes!

    Actually, I found them to be just the opposite in Fall 2015. They'd never seen a manual, had none on order and weren't interested in taking my money for one. I found one in Centennial after 7 weeks of searching and flew up there to get it.

    I got one of @7r41lbr34k3r 's knobs on Friday. I was out camping, so it had to wait for a Sunday test.

    IMG_20180610_065623.jpg

    It is just a straight up delrin knob without any engraving. It is like my printed knob but much, much better. My hand fits all the way around it and the slickness of the delrin makes it slide into gear.

    I've made/sold 30-35 knobs at this point, and you were literally the first to request a different shape/configuration. This really surprises me, figured it would have happened long ago.

    That is really interesting. I am an odd ball though but do get the importance of folks wanting it to mate with the boot.

    It is great to have options. Thanks for working with me on this one!

    I am wondering about swapping on the stock knob for the ToyotaCare appointments. I can see some confused kids trying to figure out where 1st and Reverse are.

    It is still a circus when I take my truck in for service at the dealership where i bought it. They all panic when they open my door and see 3 pedals. They all go searching for the "stick guy" lol.
