    I knew a guy a few years back who bought a new Acura RSX-S with a 6 speed while only having an understanding of how to shift and less than a hour practice. He did just fine.

    If you can, go to a peaceful area, and start the car from zero. Then break and start over again. Practice makes for good foot eye coordination.

    I had to teach my girly how to drive stick when I got my wrx, as I am not the designated driver, haha. I just took her to a parking lot, told her to start, go to 10 mph, stop, and do it all over again. I just let the seat back and let her go. She got the hang of it after a while.

    Important thing is to not be self-conscious about it. If you panic when you stall in traffic, you're just gonna stall again. Who cares if someone sees you stall? You won't see that person ever again.

    Good luck, and interesting choice picking the 4-door.

    The clutch is covered against wear for 3 years as a part of the standard warranty. There have been debates about whether premature wear caused by beginner shifters counts as abuse (thus voiding the warranty). It doesn't, as a consumable Subaru should replace it even with excessive wear.
