Can see that. I'm among the younger generations but I still support manual transmission. Some friends around my age even laughed at me for saying that I prefer manual over auto as they claimed that manual are for stupid people. In fact, never driven auto before. Din't feel like want to try.

Sometimes it is more about feel than pure figures or shift times. The feeling of depressing and releasing the clutch while shifting the gearstick with your hands. You should try more if can.
The fact that im talking about shift times and mistakes means Im talking about racing.

I also prefer manual than auto, as I was used to the stiffness of racing clutch, now im on auto, my left leg tends to get numb haha....kinda boring driving auto even in jams too.

Its really fun to drive stick but paddle shift eliminates mistakes and get faster shift times!!!
Maybe I'm really a pussy.
Personally I think it is more challenging for stick driving. The possibility of making mistakes, makes racing all more the fun.

Nobody is arguing about dual clutch vs manual that from a performance standpoint that DSG is indeed faster, but it disconnects the driver to machine.

For what its worth, I do not have any manual cars at home. Oh wait, I don't have cars at home, I sail a boat.

Manual is harder to drive than auto, and manual are for stupid people? You better stop hanging out with them, they must be some special kind of stupid.

Subaru parts more expensive? Probably due to its boxer engine which is rather unconventional compared to the usual 4 banger found in Evo. Besides, many of Evo's parts are compatible with other cars which might be the reason why its parts are cheaper because they are available in larger quantities compared to parts for Subaru?

mainly because proton was based from mitsubishi...and that people recognize the evo series more than subie....

plus....most parts are compatible/interchangeable with proton = relatively cheaper parts...


meanwhile subie parts limited to their own...even their wheel pcd was 5x100 which is quite rare..including several car like volvo/ford

Actually, that really is one thing I don't miss about driving a manual. Having a free hand to drink or hold my sandwich while driving. Could never do that with my manual. Damn inconvenient.

Sure, hold a sandwich. What's your definition of sandwich? Your hand sandwiched somewhere?

Your bimmer got manual also on other markets. But I was wondering whether is it possible to convert it to manual over here or has anyone you know or heard of doing such conversion? It was a nice sporty car to begin with, but the transmission somehow hinders the car's true potential.

True, manual requires more skill to operate.

As for those people that I'm talking about, some of them said auto is good because they can sms and drive at the same time. Another even said, if he drive manual, he can't even concentrate to chat with passengers. :stupid:

Only old Evo stuff are compatible with Proton isn't it? Those new 4G63T terbalik is not compatible with Perdana, Satria, Wira anymore isn't it? But I think those can fit Waja, Gen 2, Satria Neo, Persona....

Is boxer engine reliable ?
If talking about boxer engine themselves, should be okay. Look at Porsche sports car (Boxster, Cayman, 911) and those old VW Beetle. They've are also using boxer engines. As far as I know, they are reliable enough.

Manual might be fun but it's not competitive. Everything is more to semi-auto now in order for the driver to concentrate on driving rather than anything else.

Manual is a beeyatch since u cant have your hotdog if there's intermittent congestion..:biggrin:

Yes. The only unreliable engines I know of is rotary.
