(Yes, I have to go as basic as wikipedia to explain the basics apparantly)

Quote:
"The clutch pedal is then released, the driver matches the engine Revolutions per minute to the gear RPM either using the throttle (accelerator) (when changing down) or waiting for RPM to decrease (when changing up) until they are at a level suitable for shifting into the next gear."


The double clutching to downshift (or get back into a gear after waiting around in neutrul for no reason) is bearable to do in the Impreza (but still not as good as other vehicles). The waiting for RPM to decrease is specifically the funky part on the impreza. The RPMS don't drop consistently (fast to 2k, slow taper from there) and the DBW is constantly behind. I have to release the gas pedal wait a fraction of a second and THEN clutch or the engine free revs.


This all comes full circle to wanting a way to reprogram the ****ty DBW system in these cars that's built for... people who don't know much about driving.


An aftermarket solution, would be nice

Picked up my Alcantara wrapped wheel with matching orange stitch. Gorgeous work as usual from my upholsterer.
