Some of you know i got my gen3 few weeks back, before that i own a automatic gen2 and an automatic corolla, and i've never driven a manual before until my gen3. I took it easy in the first 2 weeks, praticing shifting once in a while in small streets and the rest of the time i still use my gen2 as main transportation.

As i am getting more and more familiar with my gen3, i took it to the high way and redline my little teggy, and HOLY sh*t, I WILL NEVER BUY A f**kING AUTOMATIC AGAIN! This things pulls like crazy, mid way in 4th gear, i was already over 130km/h... it was kind a scary (hey, never drove a manual, not to mention redlining it), but then after the rush this is what happen...


Amen~!

Not bashing auto, is great for delivery and in town traffic or highway traffic. Just wanted to express my feeling and excitement with my family(TI.net). :)

i drive auto and big advantage to auto is u can eat/drink/talk on phone/do multiple things at once....however, i would rather give that up, and have fun driving a manual...

Very true. I have an auto and want a standard, but since I'm going to commute to college (into New Orleans), the auto is the definate better choice (maybe not safest choice, for theft concerns, but easier driving). once you're 15 miles near the city the traffic just kinda stops. :-/

thats an advantage. but is also dangerous.. there is a quote on TV the promotes safe driving and it goes something like this "multi-tasking is great but not when driving, so take care of business before you get in the driver seat"
I also saw this guy with a bumper sticker that said "Maybe you'll drive better if that cell phone was up your ass"

i agree, they both have thier advantages and disadvantages...but going from a manuel to an auto is a lot like going back to your wife after sleeping w/a porn star....it gets a little boring sometimes
