DON'T USE BRAKES JUST SMOOTHLY PUT IT INTO FIRST FROM WHATEVER GEAR YOUR IN.
: I've got a stick question for you guys. Don't think this is silly but I learned to drive on a stick and then my first car was a used auto, now I've orderd my first new car hehe! 323i /sports and it's 5 speed. and the question I have for you is this, when say on the highway or coming to a red light is it better on the car to downshift through the gears? or to shift into neutral and slowly brake to stop?
