: For those with manual transmissions, do you downshift(4-3-2-1-N) before coming to a dead stop or do you just put in neutral and apply brakes?

Everybody shifts differently.. On the interstate, for example, I usually downshift to fourth or third on an exit ramp, where you have room to slow down using the engine. When driving on city streets, I usually just clutch and brake..
