You dick, quit hassling the man!Ok, I want to understand this because my gf used the same logic about driving in traffic when at first she wasn't considering a manual pickup. I drive in traffic all the time and having to push the clutch pedal now and then hardly enters my conscious mind. What is it about the manual that you don't like in traffic? You said your Acura was a boring appliance, and you want to replace with another un-involving appliance with more power?
Please don't take this the wrong way, maybe I come across like I'm a dick but I promise I'm a very nice guy that just wants to know stuff.
1) I finally got in a touch of traffic (and a line for a massive Christmas display) with my GTPP, and it was so easy to creep along with just the clutch - I even have my CAS pulled so it's a bit more effort, but zero complaints. I don't DD so maybe it would eventually get old, but the fun factor is so high with the manual + PP.
For that matter, when I would occasionally drive my Supra to work downtown, the fun of getting to drive it definitely negated the manual hassle, and that car at one point had an HKS triple plate clutch (my left leg had like 10lbs more muscle mass than my right )
B) Beautiful GT350
