When I test drove my 95 nine months ago I butchered the clutch and stalled it 5+ times.

The dealer must have been crying inside.

: I'm in the process of selling my car to kid who just learned how to drive a stick one month ago (!!!!). He totaled his auto M3 screwing around 5 months ago, and now his dad will give him mine, whaaaaaa??? I think my car has a grudge towards me already, ;-)..Anyways, since I knew/could tell he was serious buyer, I pulled over and let him try it out..duuuddde, not like he rode the clutch too much or anthing, but still....after 2 minutes I was like, "ok that's good, now let me switch you so I can show you a couple more things to the car"..sheesh I though it couldn't get worse after we were cruising like 25 in 5th gear, and with LTW flywheel, my car sounded like it was falling apart, hehe...In my head I was like, "Dude, get the guy the F out of the driver seat!", ;-)>..CYA>PM3
: : Changing an Auto to a stick is not recommended.
: : But a used manual M3 and sell yours.

: : Have you ever driven a standard?

: : If you haven't, I would recommend learning on a piece of shit. I learned on my M3 and I'm sure my car still holds a grudge.

: : : I am thinkin bout swap my automatic trans to manual shift. How much it goin to cost? is it worth it? will that takes a lots of work? and have problems easily after get it swap??

: : : thanks a lot for the infor
: : : thanks
