I really love the battery, i never have had a problem with the battery. my only concern is the weight, but if you don't mind about that, it should be fine.

you are just a girly girl. People who drive automatics who are too scared to drive manual make that excuse all the time.

i can't say i drive traffic everyday, but i have a ton of friends who do and they don't mind it one bit. you tend to get used to it soo much it becomes second nature, and even in traffic, you don't think about it.

Why would I be scared? I've driven it before.


Now a column-mounted shifter, THAT'S scary.

i hate sitting in traffic in manual, it's so annoying having to clutch every few min
i hate sitting in traffic in auto, it's so annoying having to keep your foot on the brake pedal
i love sitting in traffic in smg, no clutching and no torque converter = win

I'd need M3 caliper carriers. Remember, I've got an M3 brake swap in the rear and will soon go to M3 fronts.

Still considering those wheels, though.

You can let off if you're at a stop and the car won't creep forward like an auto. He's just super lazy.
