How many of you have a manual 5 speed in your 2nd gen? I wants to know. I has it.


I got a certified preowned 09 SE coupe last May w 40k miles a 5 speed trans. Finding one w manual was a must, especially in a car with such a small engine. I added a weighted shift knob from TWM Performance. Its weighs over a pound and is brushed aluminum with engraved gear pattern. It makes a HUGE difference in shifting performance, so much smoother and effortless. I recommend one for everyone w a manual.
