Iím two weeks in from my STI 5door order at the ripe old age of 51 years. I guess itís my mid-life crisis car. Iím trading in my more sedate í05 Legacy GT Automatic. Iíve never driven a manual but always wanted to and should at this point. I just finished a two hour session learning from my brother in law on his í01 VW Passat. I want to get the car home through busy Northern VA traffic without stalling or damaging the clutch. It seems like every car has their peculiarities about their clutch/shifter. Would love to hear what the 2011 STI may have in store for me.
