+100.


FWIW, I think the auto industry has collectively lost it's direction in the past few years, pushing autos and ultra-high-tech capabilities which essentially cut the driver out if the driving experience. I really believe that in another few years manuals will be "cool" and "retro" again and people will get tired of the barrage of auto-bot technologies. We're still human, and we love to have fun! Who doesn't want to have more fun?
