mac.mogul No matter what you do, swapping an automatic car to a manual transmission never works as well as just buying a manual in the first place. It usually just creates more headaches. You'd be better off trading the car in on the same thing with a manual.

Miztaken1312 I'd only do it if the transmission blew. 80k is not a lot for modern cars. My car is at 61k and the trans is still as smooth and crisp as it was when I got it. Aside from the nice grind once going into third. But I deserve all fault for that. Word of advice to everyone, don't race your friend in his WRX, even though you'll be neck and neck until his boost pressure builds.

True.. What about when it gets to like 80k miles? Maybe I should just wait till i get a new car long down the road. I always think about man if I had a manual car it would be fun, but i guess its best to just wait.
