You'll learn the basics within the first few hours at most. It's all about see-sawing the clutch vs gas pedal and getting a feel for just how much you need to let the clutch out before you give it gas. Honestly the most difficult part is getting it off the line. You'll start out over-revving it and lurching it and maybe even stalling a few times but it's really not that bad.
I wouldn't be against someone buying a manual car brand new when he/she doesn't know how to drive it yet. You won't destroy the clutch, etc like people say. As long as you're not a complete retard and it's not a GT3RS or similar with a crazy lightweight flywheel/race clutch.
Stop putting stuff like painted reflectors and premium package in your signature. You're embarrassing.
