    But I agree with practically everyone in here. You don't dump the clutch on any car, doesn't matter how strong it is. Dump it too many times even with the strongest tranny available, it will only equate to a broken transmission after numerous attempts.

    I still don't understand why you cannot decide between the two. You're worrying about you dumping it when it's a choice to make for anyboby, whether to dump it or not. I think it's a very basic common sense isn't it?

    Don't get me wrong ok, just tossing in my point of view. But my vote will be on a manual transmission. I'm sure both auto and manual will have a long life with proper care.

    ok so a 5spd sounds better right now... and arn't the STi 6 spd really strong? so if the 5 spd was to break then it would be an easyer swap then, a auto to manual... but it probably wont break for a long time.

    yes, if you're side stepping it. Just let it out smoothly, without shocking the drivetrain, and you'll be fine.

    Fine I guess I should of also put: Get an automatic if you are missing your right arm or don't have a a left foot



    just kidding man. Automatics are ok but if you are really looking to have fun with your car and live somewhere that will allow you to do that then please learn to drive stick. You owe it to yourself!
