Re: Finally got another car

I just feel so much better not having to worry about ruining the front clip of my car as I pull into these driveways. Plus, sometimes it's hard to align yourself perfectly. Especially if you need to break through traffic. The low profile tires are another thing. Especially with the way roads are. Th...

Re: Finally got another car

I sold it. I just wasn't a fan of the sporty nature of the car. Bumper was too low so some finagling was needed to prevent scraping of the fascia. The low profile tires made some bumps a PIA. Though I did get used to it. Still, pot holes and other things were definitely worrisome. The gearbox was al...

Re: I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

I love column shift automatics. If I get an automatic, it must have a column shift.

Not sure why

Re: I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

I think a good compromise might be the fore/aft placement along the right side of the shitter, parallel to 5/6 or 5/R. Obviously that would have to vary in LHD and RHD cars. I think you're right. Though many cars probably don't have the real-estate. Some can barely fit the shifter. It's just funny ...

Re: I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

I usually rest my arm on mine as well, though if its a coffee mug my mouth goes on the lid. I work at a place with lots of people so my coat could potentially carry a lot of germs/bacteria etc. I'd rather that not be in my cup. It's just funny how it's something so overlooked. I never expected a 199...

I think I found the worst thing about interior design for manual transmission cars

Cup holder placement. On my Civic, the cup sits behind the shifter. This means when you're shifting around town, the cup does not get in the way. On my volvo, it sits directly behind the shifter. This means when you're shifting around town, the cup is right in the way and you need to have this awkwa...

Re: I hate this car

IIRC the previous gen Regal was made in Germany till 2011. 2012-2017 they were made in Canadia. 2018 they were made in Germany with the new generation. I'm heavily contemplating a previous gen German one. Might be a bit more simpler than the current gen with no Turbo etc. I wonder how they hold up. ...

The Regal is actually more German than most of VWs lineup.

I do like the Regal and was looking into one. Just a bit too pricey for what is in my budget

Re: Dodge Dart Manuel Woes

How about the 'Jeep Renegade? I feel that's an extension of the Dart?

Re: Does this unicorn exist?

Going back to the Jeep, I hear they went with a cable actuated shifter compared to the mechanical on in the JK. Wonder how it/if it would impact shift feel. I'm not all too sure how the 6 speed felt in the JK. Just curious is all. For OP. I feel an even more Unicorn would be anything with an I6 and ...

Re: When 5 gears just aren't enough

I've been tempted by a truck driving career. I'd be curious how reversing one them will be. I'm sure with practice it's not bad.

How was the clutch?

Re: FS: 1996 Honda Civic 5 speed manual

Ah yeah, still driving it. Splitting it between that and the Volvo. Very annoying having two cars.

I will trim it back to 1 again.

Perhaps! When does everyone want to do it?
