I can list the pros and cons between 6MT vs. 5MT and 97.6% of Subaru owners can't list what they had for lunch yesterday so that puts me in the spot of being able to offer my opinion and for many it is 5MT and likely is the case for the OP.
I get 0 kickbacks from any transmission manufacturer or installer. I currently have PPG gears in my car and you know what? **** PPG. Would someone with a vested interest say that?
I still don't get the constant badmouthing of the 6 speed. You are aware that NEARLY EVERY MODERN SPORTSCAR AND SUPERCAR comes with a 6sp manual right? Somehow 1 extra gear (that keeps you in the powerband more) is simply too much?
Can you at least agree that they are very robust, and with all the years they have been out now, buying a 6 speed is an affordable option.
I know your knowledge level of these cars is at a master level, and far beyond mine. That said, I am not completely ignorant of these cars and I keep reading these inflammatory statements and I can't figure out why.
