For me it's not about going fast in a straight line, there is nothing better than downshifting on a turn from 5 to 3, with your hand and foot, and getting it perfect to fire out of the hole

Sorry you guys may make fun of me but I would rather have a connection with a car, I really cannot drive an automatic anything precisely.... I can drive it but there is no control for me. Probably has something to do with the fact that I have driven manuals all my life.

Just my opinion, I thought the review was great, he's got a sharp tongue though,
You nailed it man...5 to 3 on a turn.
With manual stick shift u get a sense of control. It feels like the car obeys you. Whereas an automatic feels like the computer runnin on it's own... Just my opinion.
This reviewer calling manual dumb just shows tht he was not born as a driver on manual.
