BTW, I've shifted 14 cycles, and 6 different cars, and my lawn tractor has 8 forward and 4 reverse gears in it. Oh, and I drove a pop truck that had a 6-speed tranny with a 3-speed transaxle in it. That's 18 gears, and NO synchromesh. Every downshift required double-clutching.
I always have a hard time believing someone if they try to over convince you they know how to do something. Maybe you know how to drive a manual im guessing you dont. Comparing your impreza paddle shifter to F1 cars might be too much of an unrelastic stretch. I would like to invite you to the realm of reality.
You have an Automatic im sure you like it but its not a manual. This thread is about the impreza MT so anything you say isnt applicable.
