I prefer a wagon for my DD, and manual is very rare in a wagon. Plus, manual was never designed for the traffic jams very common in NY region. Still, I would have jumped on a manual wagon if I could have found one. Maybe some day I will swap out my step for a manual tranny.

I've been playing Dota 2, and I've found 2 items so far. But, when I check my backpack, it's gone. One was a blue chest item for some character I don't know. The other I just got which was for Bloodseeker. It was feathers or something. But, after I close out of the match, I don't have it. Can anyone help me with this?

This time I want to play the game site http://www.mmolive.com/ or http://www.mmohome.com/ ,introducedinterested we can work together to engage in team! Great!

the germans make better manual cars since everyone in europe drives manual. manual also makes you look cooler while driving.

Manual.


If you like eating in your car, automatic is right up your lane. If you enjoy driving with music on low/silent while listening to your car roar or purr... Manual is the way.
