no, what I meant was that A LOT of my friends keep bugging me about not getting a manual, i tell them, "well, I dont race race, i dont care about getting better gas milage or control, the point of driving is taking me from point a to point b, there is nothing else to it unless you wanna drive fast either on the road or on the track", I choose the auto wrx cause it looked nice both in and out, plus it was AWDIn another vein, I'm curious. You said you weren't "interested in living my life 1/4 mile at a time" and that was why you didn't get the standard. But thats not WHY people get the MT at all. They get it for the extra control they get out of thier car. Not to mention that you will likely get better gas milage, (properly driven) than an auto. If it because you don't know how to drive a manual, that's ok. Heck, most kids your age don't know how to drive a manual. And if you are not interested in racing as you said, why are you racing?
Also, I do know how to drive stick, and pretty damn good at it. my previous "vehicles" was a 03 gixxer 600, and that i got that from my cousin who was leaving for college and he gave it to me. I was car less, and 17 still in high school. The bike was my transport from home to school and work everyday even in the rain, the only time I didnt drive it was when a friend offered to pick me up or get dropped off by my parents. After my senior year I got rid of that bike so fast, caused too much attention from fellow students and sold it for $3400 and got myself a 1997 suzuki sidekick manual for the money, I didnt know what the hell I was thinking I wanted something roomy could carry stuff my like snowboards, or skies, and stuff like that. I drove that thing around until last summer when I gave it to my cousin cause he wanted a car. And now, when my parents offer me a car I couldve chosen a 350z, g35, sti, or the new 07 camry I choose the wrx. I considered the nissans cause they had the "sex" appeal, and I could get all "them" college chicks. and the sti, well, its an sti but it has too much going, ie" big wing" and stuff like that. The new camrys are extra nice, I wouldve gotten the v6 version but at the end I chose the wrx cause I fell in love with them since 2002.
And last, my friend who has the 2003 "bugeye" bugs all the time about racing him. I never asked for anything, but he insists on racing me to see "how fast the new 2.5L in the 4eats could do", if they were any faster or slower...blah. Well, If i wasnt such a good friend I wouldve socked him in the face for everytime he'd ask. I'll race his pathetic wannabe ricer butt next time just to shut him the hell up.
