Learned how to drive on a manual car. A few things:

- Does anyone here not know how to change the oil? If no, aren't you somewhat curious?
- Maybe it's just me, but I essentially learned by just watching my parents drive our 90 VW Passat with 5MT.
- The E9x is a really easy car to drive. First of all, you have a really soft clutch pedal. And you have hill assist. That's almost cheating haha. Try driving a Civic with MT, I thought that's a great learner car.
- If you want a challenge like I had, drive a 993 Turbo. Ridiculously heavy clutch pedal, offset/weird angled pedals, my head on a platter if I screwed up.

I also wonder how many here says they know how to drive manual but end up just riding their clutch half the time? Either way, try them out! It's a ton of fun.
