i have a 2008 wrx for when i want to row gears
i have a 800+whp (built motor, built trans, full bolt ons,E85, JRZs) 2010 gtr for when i want to be faster than pretty much anything at the track, run 9.99s@140 at the strip, **** on just about anything on the streets or drive my 12 year old to school in. All on pump gas, street tires and the same tune.
The GTR was the first car I ever owned that does not have a manual gearbox and if the option was available I still wouldnt have bought a manual
try rowing through first, second and third fast enough to keep up with that launch
