That's totally fine. I love driving my friends cars that are manual transmission because I rarely do it. I'll never be able to shift like a pro, and at the same time as my daily driver I'd probably not want a 6MT. I was just poking fun at the guys who like to talk about how much extra car control they have with their clutch and shift lever. I think that fun factor is the most valid reason these days to get a 6MT. And it's a good reason.
Hey if I had a second car or a real sports car as a weekend ride, it'd undoubtedly be a GT3 which comes in nothing but a standard transmission.
