I have two feet, if you design the car so that I need to hit three pedals with two feet, you failed.

I don't know how long shifting takes in an E46 manual, but I know how long it took me in my type-s RSX, and it's not exactly super fast if you're shifting smoothly. If you're matching revs and not power-shifting, it takes a little while. The difference is that you don't notice because you're busy doing something.

I'm sorry if you suck at shifting.
