Which transmission do you have ? Manual or Automatic ?

As the title states.

Post up what you drive !

Background: We're looking for what's more popular with FR-S and BRZ owners. Since we deal directly with many manufactures we would like to let them know what transmissions people have so they can focus on developing new mods ! Please post up what you drive and what you would like to see offered in the future; short shifters, shift extensions ect...

MT WRB BRZ. I wish I got the AT though. I think it has automatic rev matching using the paddle shifters.

LOL. So much fun. I havent driven a stick in 6 years, so I got it XD

Luckily, I only stalled once trying to put my car inside the garage cuz it has a slight uphill slope.

I did and was reving the engine for a while when starting from a full stop. But now Im used to it. I try not to go above 2k RPM when starting.

I think a lot of people will not vote. FWIW, the initial sales figures, if I recall correctly, showed about 80% manuals to 20% autos.

I think I saw something along the lines of the manual adoption rate on this platform being ~70%.

Thanks for voting guys !

This is definitely good info. Remember: If you have any ideas for mods that you want, post up your ideas. I'm happy to relay the message to the manufactures that we work with.

Single exit cat-back Exhaust on Driver side exit. Straighter the pipe the better, Mandrel bend only, stainless steel or Ti.
