But how would we get there? I mean, we couldn't possibly drive our disconnected, quick shifting automatic SMG cars there. Those things shouldn't even be allowed on the streets...

Just got mine in manual in the bronx. After 3 yrs of not driving stick, my left shin is sore. I am on the clutch every 5 seconds in this city. But it's all good.

I don't see the big deal with having a manual in traffic. I can move at a pretty slow creep in 1st gear.

I feel it's safer and I have more control with manual.

Highway traffic is one thing. City traffic is a bit different. Red light to red light every block, people cutting you off. Da bronx man. The jungle
