as far as I know mostly every foci here is a auto which brings a 1000$ premium also Do you like to rock your car as the lights about to turn green this is another less nasty habit I've gotten into...I've noticed that almost 5spd guys do this...I think I'm the only 5spd in town too LOL!

I don't think anyone really cares around here. but i'm sure if someone knew about foci, and looked at my car, they'd be pretty suprised. considering my car was the only 5 speed that the dealership it was bought at didn't even know it had the car. i'm just a lucky duck i guess

there are legitimate reasons for an auto.

No one cared on the focus but for some reason people keep saying when they find out the Mazda is a manual "I thought this was an auto" lol

Made me laugh. YES! (at least sometimes)
Letting the car roll back a little is the hallmark of having a manual tranny.

If i am 'front' at a light and next to a car that seems 'interested' If I can I will allow my car to roll back slightly. If i see the other person do so, it is fun to know They have a manual tranny too.
I usually do not 'rock' it (repeatedly rolling back and pulling forward.. it is just a waste of the clutch.). though I have done it a few times.

I think it is a pity more Americans are not interested in 'real' driving: REAL DRIVING REQUIRES A CLUTCH!! Driving with an automatic is just like riding on a bus IMO.
manual transmission is everything about shifting when and how "I" want, and not how some device feels like maybe yes, maybe no decides. Or ten seconds AFTER i want it to!

My buddy went to trade in his fully loaded '10 SES coupe with a 5-speed and they were going to give him a lot less because of the manual. Needless to say he sold it privately.

If you think 5-speed is funny you should see the look on peoples faces when you say 6-speed. lol!
