Re: phi1542's 02 Coupe EX I remember learning how to drive a manual. Always asking friends to drive their cars, the good ole days. The day I got my daily S10, I was kind of freaked out by it. Its a 5MT and I had to drive it to work the next day. And I got stuck in traffic on the way home. On big hills. On the highway. Luckily, I knew the concept well enough and made it home without killing it and running into people. Had a few close calls on hills during the first few weeks though. But you'll love it. My daily gives me the motivation to finish my 6MT swap, so it'll be even better than before. Master upshifting, then dry downshifting, then rev-matching and so on.
