You don't need to drive a fast car for it to be a fun. A Civic or RSX-S is the perfect example of that. A lot more exciting that say, anauto Z or G.

Either you love it or you don't. I always wanted to drive manual transmission even before I knew how to drive. Most of the time people hate on it beforethey've truly mastered it. They might of driven it once every 3 or 4 months & although they don't stall they think they know how to drive it right.I will never buy an automatic for the rest of my life.

Well of course if just vibin and in relax/lazy mode I'd say an auto is better but there really isnt too much difference in the situation imo.

In all of my years of driving, even in my old beater...I can never bring myself to eat inside the car while driving.

It's funny, sports cars "enthusiast" swear by manuals.

But I've seen semi-autos out-shift some drivers

.

I give props to anyone who can roll while manual shifting. I saw this done once in HS when i used to do idiotic things like

. It's hard enough to roll while driving auto, but manual

. I go either-or, but I'd probably take a semi-auto over a pure manual thesedays.

V-teck huh?

When I'm super hungry, I go find a place to eat and I'll be satisfied when I get back in the car. I would rather find the 15-30 mins to enjoy a mealrather than multi tasking in the car and A. worry about getting the interior dirty and B. not focusing completely on the road.

I don't know how you dudes do it. Manuals fun to drive, but ill stick to automatics. I hate driving manual during rush hour or around San Francisco withalot of hills.

Manual is FTW haha. Auto though is ez mode man, sometimes i do miss the laziness of it. But then again if i had an automatic i would be texting and talking onthe phone more offten, and that would probably result in an accident for me.

For me its gotta be a manual... the only way to go for me...

Furthermore, its gotta be one with a clutch... none of that semi-auto, flappy-paddle ******'s...

3 pedals = manual. Anything else is automatic.

Depends on the car, definitely.

But manuals on sporty cars are a must.
I couldn't imagine driving an automatic version of my car.
