Yeah no excuse really. I love manual mode. Not the absolute best auto Iíve driven, but it certainly does the job well

Also helps that it's cheaper now that it used to be. I was quoted 650 or 750 (canadian dollars) for a full paint correction and ceramic, which is pretty good value IMO, and you come once a year after that and pay 150 to reapply the top coat. That's what I'm looking to do cause I love the guy's work but wheels and wings and other upgrades always win out the decision game

I agree. I think AT downshifting is simply great

MT users: Do you heel and toe while downshifting all the time? If you do that's great. If you don't, or can't.. well, AT manual mode -kind of- does that, and sounds great at least it is great to me..

I only have some complaints about the final drive ratio. If I could, I would definitely probably maybe perhaps mod that. But that would increase the fuel consumption, and I drive it everyday (oh man, I'm so lucky) so I wouldn't

(I couldn't read the whole thread, hope this is not very irrelevant)

Having a long term plan would be very useful for saving money. There is no point of buying a header if it will be turbo one year later.

There are very good deals from auto salvage companies on EBay. Almost new parts go for less than half the price from totaled cars.

I donít heel toe downshift every time, that would get exhausting to me. Lol With the MT in the twins you are shifting a LOT. Itís great fun, but itís work. Iím so glad Toyota/Subaru gave the option of a fun AT for the twins. There is a very big benefit of not having to shift in heavy traffic, but you can still have fun when you want to.

Manual downshifts in manual, I have Ecutek with Racerom, it is the awesome

I never really got rev match down pat, inconsistency was consistent.

And that's exactly why myself and the thread starter is asking now...to come up with the plan.
