Honest thoughts on the MANUAL transmission?
Thanks for the replies guys. From what I've gathered so far the reverse/1st gear thing is probably an exagerration on the part of the reviewer. I'm coming from an old 3series BMW and the reverse on that is in the same place as well. I've never put that in reverse by mistake even without a helpful sound.
Stalling however is really no good. Not only is it embarassing but it also tells me that I might not be able to aggressively "block" other people from cutting me off in super heavy traffic (trust me, traffic is world-class here...).
War's suggestion of flying to a different country just to try it out may not be a bad idea....too bad I'm super busy for the near future.
Anyone here know if the transmission problems seen in tha long official thread under the powertrain subforum still applies to 2015 models? No one here experiences "grinding" of gears?
