Can you have someone experienced shepherd you through it? It's a big deal the first time. There are a few make-or-break steps that can bite you badly.

I used to do everything myself. Too lazy in my old age. If you're motivated, go for it.

That's actually a really good idea, thx. I'd give him some cash, but save a lot, as well as learn a lot too

Yeah. I played sunday league baseball for a bit but the league folded. Now the only other adult league the season lasts from like March to October playing every weekend. Its just crazy. And for expensive I have a buddy who is getting back into judo and wants a few of us to go but its 40min away 2x a week. Gas would be more than the class

I had just started playing tennis with a buddy but we're cheap and public courts dont have lights. So thats out for a couple more weeks still.

I looked at a WRB BRZ limited with the PP before I went to Toyota. It was very nice and will be my back up if I can't get the Hakone. My only issue with the WRB is how common it is around here. Probably 8 out of 10 that I have seen are the WRB. I like to be a bit different.
I also am a huge fan of green cars. Always have been.

Good luck, I hope they do find you your transmission type.. BTW, does the Lava get its new coat of paint before it leaves you?

I do like the forest green color I forget what it's called though. That is acceptable in manual. (In my best Ron voice)
