Nope, I too bought my RS without stick knowledge, But I drive it like crazy, and am pretty confident.
I have to make left turns on a hill into traffic all the time, so my hill technique is pretty good, I've only had the car for 2.5 weeks and I feel pretty confident. Only thing I'm a little leary on is downshifting for corners, but I have got my double clutch technique down pretty well.
The 5spd and slightly bigger engine really make a difference compared to my 99 impreza 2.2l 4AET, that thing was a pig for accelleration. I think you lose ALOT of power with the auto.
