This! I've owned 3 Nissan 240sx's (all 5MT), a Honda Acura (5MT) and the WRX 5MT is by far the best. Yes the Honda and Nissan was easier to drive but I love the gated, notch-y feel. My brother that has an 88' 300zx-T loved the throws on my wagon.
Although the 2nd gear whine does scare me somewhat, so I try to avoid de-accelerating in that gear.
