^ even our sti six speed sandwiches two gears between our 1 and 3... honestly I like always being in the right gear (not always possible with our 5mt box) but when it comes to shifting through traffic I find the 5 speed much nicer.
When do you need better accel between 100 and 130? .. who gets to do those speeds legally?? ... Hrmff.. I'm livin in the wrong part of the world I guess.
Anyone notice that the mini clubman is not so mini? Dawn and I parked next to one in my car the other night and its easily as large if not larger than my '10 wrx hatch.
mini my foot.. and its underpowered just like the VW's are.
