Look on Amazon or eBay. They have everything. If you don't find what you're looking for, have something custom made. There are plenty of websites for that. But I am also genuinely curious of what to expect lol

Be obnoxious. Get out and do the macarana if bouncing off the limiter isn't to your liking.

I thought the expectations he was talking about were obvious. I guess the confusion here just adds to what I was saying earlier about how people wouldn't understand what the shift pattern was intended to signal.

I'd guess that 80% of the cars in the UK are manual and therefore plenty of chances of being behind, infront and to side of of one.. and nothing unusual to report..
In North America the 4% of the people that still buy MT cars think they are somehow special with mad skills that nobody else on the road can learn or understand. The MT is somehow considered mystical if not outright magical and you need very extensive training and practice to understand it so it should be feared by the general public.
The fact that their mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers probably managed to drive them every day without issue or fear escapes them.
The ****heads that pull up tp your bumper are going to do it if you have a MT or AT since they just don't give a shit.

I do think I'm special, but has nothing to do with my cars transmissions.

You can't fix other drivers' flaws. My father-in-law is the type that will floor it because the light turned green, regardless if there are people in front of him or not.


My suggestion would be, don't drive where there are people (this is actually my idea of therapeutic relaxation, driving isolated backroads). Or, increase your insurance policy coverage.

I lived in the Bay Area and daily drove a manual ‘91 MX-5 on the streets (hills) of San Francisco for over two decades, don’t me started on tailgaters at stop signs and traffic lights— you learn pretty quickly to modulate the clutch/gas/handbrake or you roll backwards and die.
Now I live in the flattest place on Earth (South Florida, and driving a ‘17 manual BRZ- only have had to use the handbrake on a “hill” a few times in almost 3 years, and never turned on the hillstart assist even once). I miss the hills.

Wouldn't people have to pull right up to your bumper to see what the manual pattern emblem is?
