Red '08 SES Coupe with a 5M. bought used with 89K miles. Have put 1800 miles on it, and it uses absolutely no oil, and getting 37-40 mpg.

Gotta love those manual trannies vs. the slush boxes. If you know how to drive them, you can get way better mpg and performance than the auto. Plus, where I live the auto is constantly shifting back and forth with a little 4-banger.
