Fully agree with you. Been driving standard pretty much since day 1. There's no active thought to the physical effort or coordination of driving stick. Mrs and I both drive standard daily and don't think anything of it... And we have kids.hoob wrote: ↑Jul 11th, 2017 7:28 pmI've never understood people who whinge that driving a manual "in traffic" is annoying.
Whenever driving stick it's innate, I'm barely even aware of when I shift. It's not like it's a conscious burden I'm actively aware of, it's all muscle memory and patterns.
It's like people complaining about breathing. I mean unless you have an active medical condition like asthma, it's not like you have to actively think about what you're doing.
We see no need to compromise a fun car when you have a family. Mrs car is a 6sp turbo... With 4 doors so it's perfect for kids and the awd makes winters safe and easy
