The 6 speed on my '98 is pretty smooth. It might not have that silky smooth feeling that a Japanese stick gives you, but it feels the way a tranny is supposed to feel -- i.e. you can feel the clutch engage through the pedal, and the stick clicks into gear. I find that the Japanese cars I've driven have absolutely no feedback at all -- the clutch feels like you are pressing the pedal against a rubber band, and the shifter feels like you are playing a video game.
