Thumbs up

Been trying to sell one of two used 5's for 6 months without the first serious prospect. Seems nobody wants a performance car without one of those GM Automatics!

when you can shift as fast as a SMG then you can call it un-manly bro.

95% of cars over here are manual - Auto's have never really taken off, particularly in the non-luxury market.

Yeah, you have to bear in mind that the drivers in the US lack the mental faculties to count beyond their number of feet, though - three is a bewildering number of pedals. :nana

pluss imagine getting an early american sedan to get moving, youd burn so many clutch's, so much wieght, so little power ( comparativly)

I had a tough time finding a 5er with a 5 speed. There was exactly one 5 speed in this area. All the rest were autos or triptronics. The salesman at the dealer told me they had to special order 5 speeds.

But I agree, manual is the way to go.
