    thats really too bad to hear, that it hurts you to drive the car you love. perhaps you could get a beater and turn it into a track beast? or keep it as a sunday drive sort of deal.

    dont downplay the 4EAT just yet, theyre capable of more than ppl realize. and brake launching off the line will give you awesome consistent times.

    Convert it to a hand clutch via a hub paddle shift. No joke I've seen it done on an Audi S4 at www.2bennett.com. One of the owners is a quad and he modified it, they are local (Davis about 1 hour from you) and might be able to modify it for you.

    Edit: They use a modified Tiptronic not a clutch, but I know everything is ran through paddles on the steering wheel might be worth a call.

    Thanks for the ideas. But I'd just trade it for a A/T before I'd go through all that work. I dont think this car would be hard to sell/trade. I plan to keep it cherry clean.

    it really is too bad.. but this is only my FIRST day... and i did have a long 1.5 hour drive back from dealer today also. maybe this is just a heavier than usual day.

    I was thinking an A/T WRX would be no fun at all, but maybe ill look into it. But I doubt i'll find one with 100k certified Subaru extended warranty like this one has..

    found out my car has Falken FK452 tires. I guess this is a good tire? I thought it was very noisy, but maybe thats just my drivetrain itself. It's hard to tell, and this is my first AWD car ever.
